A Pope retires as Lent begins

The legacy of Pope Benedict XVI by Fr Robert Barron

It has been an eventful week. Our Holy Father's announcement on Monday came as a tremendous surprise. Our immediate reaction ought to be an expression of spiritual solidarity with the Pope. We should pray for him during these days of emotion and challenge.

On Wednesday we began our Lenten journey which will end with the joy of the resurrection. For anyone discerning a vocation, this is a wonderful time of year to focus on one's prayer life and to make a determined effort to foster an ever deeper relationship with the Lord.

It is the Lord who calls.
