Jesuit On The Writings Of Benedict

“His works will survive the centuries like those of Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas,” Cardinal Christoph Schonborn of Vienna, another theology student of Ratzinger’s, said last year. To advance that cause, Benedict’s writings are currently being compiled and edited into a multivolume set, and some speculate that one day there may be more to add. “I can’t imagine him being alive and not writing,” said the Rev. Joseph Fessio, S.J. of Ignatius Press, the primary English language publisher of Benedict’s works. Fessio, also a member of the “Ratzinger Schulerkreis,” or school circle, of former theology students that meets every year to discuss and promote Benedict’s ideas, said he was convinced Benedict would never publish anything while he is alive out of respect for Francis and the papal office. “But I suspect that when he dies there will be some posthumous works,” he said.

the petty side of me hopes our blessed pope will name names and tell us all exactly who were the people who oopposed his clean up of the vatican and to demand vatican oversight over the archdioces level (where cases of abuse where covered up nad languished). I whish he would say who exactly said thta changing the current seminaries from homosexual playgrunds would loose vocations. History will indeed look very well on our blessed Pope Benedict
