In Prayerful Remembrance of
POPE BENEDICT XVI
The seminarians, priests, professors, and staff of the Pontifical College Josephinum unite with those of the faithful around the world in mourning the loss of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
Immeasurably intelligent and ever a scholar, Benedict leaves to the Church a vast legacy of innumerable, deeply reflective theological publications – books, essays, sermons, reflections, and doctrines. Every one of these works which we, as a Church, have inherited from this great pontiff give evidence not only to his keen mind but to his all-consuming love for God and the Church. Behind each scholarly endeavor was a passionate priestly heart that, above all else, sought to share and defend with great clarity and courage the beautiful Truth of faith in Jesus Christ.
