Pope Benedict XVI's Greatest Achievements as Pope
Question from Paula P on 02-26-2013:

I have read a number of books by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and Pope Benedict XVI. What would you say are his greatest contributions to the Holy Church and the world in his role as Pope?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 02-28-2013:

Dear Paula,

He has been a good Pope in a very difficult role. He has give all he can do and is letting a younger man do the job. That is the move of a good father.

Dr. Geraghty
