A very gentle person, an extremely cultured scholar. Passionate about beautiful music, he said “to sing is almost flying”. Above all, he loved Jesus Christ and his church, as he reminded us with his last, moving, words in our world.
He also liked cats.
He was a clear and sure reference point, despite the never seen and delicate situation that he himself contributed to determine, for reasons that are unknown.
I am sorry that he left us and yet I am certain that he is now with the saints and that from there he can still help us navigate this fog.
Thank you Pope Benedict.
