I read the following excerpt this morning written by NBC News staff writer Alastair Jamieson: “Pope Benedict XVI assured a huge, cheering crowd at the Vatican Wednesday that he was not abandoning the Catholic Church, saying he would remain at its service through prayer. ‘I ask each of you to pray for me,’ he told tens of thousands who gathered in the sunshine to watch his final general audience before Thursday’s abdication. Referring to the many turbulent moments of his papacy, he acknowledge its moments of joy but also difficulty when ‘It seemed like the Lord was sleeping.’ ‘There were moments when the waters were choppy and there were headwinds,’ he said.”
Asking for prayer . . . admitting doubt . . . a bad thing? OR possibly what we need to see from even more spiritual leaders? Humanity, honesty, and humility.
