Pope Benedict XVI died the morning of Dec. 31 at Mater Ecclesiae Monastery in Vatican City. He was 95 years old and held the Catholic Church’s highest office from April 19, 2005, until his resignation on Feb. 28, 2013.
“Pope Benedict XVI played a decisive role in the history of the Catholic Church through his vast scholarly writings, his contributions to Vatican II, his leadership of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and finally his eight-year reign as pope,” said Bishop Golka. “May he rest in peace. Well done, good and faithful servant.”
