A Celebration of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

As Pope, Benedict XVI taught about the Catholic faith and the solutions to the problems of discerning and living the faith.  He exercised this role with great kindness, wisdom, authority, and humility.  Among his great teachings were” “Friendship with Jesus Christ”; the “Dictatorship of Relativism”; Christianity as religion according to reason; “God is Love”; “Saved by Hope”; “Love in Truth”; allowing celebration of the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite; condemning excessive consumerism; and ecumenical efforts.

Perhaps His Holiness’ greatest teaching was his instruction of “Friendship with Jesus Christ.”  One may argue that the focus of his papacy was to herald the message that the key to happiness is a living relationship with Jesus Christ.  To summarize his teaching, Benedict XVI instructed that if we let Christ into our lives we lose absolutely nothing of what makes life free, beautiful, and great.  In giving ourselves to Christ, we receive a hundredfold in the beauty and liberation of his friendship in return.  Jesus Christ is the only one who can make the world good and happy, and we he calls us all to grow in a living relationship with him.

Give yourself to Jesus today.  Tell him you love him and enter into a friendship with him.  What have you to lose?

Thank you Pope Benedict.
