Pope: The Lord Snoozed On Me

“There were moments of joy and light but also moments that were not easy. There were moments, as there were throughout the history of the
Church, when the seas were rough and the wind blew against us and it
seemed that the Lord was sleeping. I took this step in the full knowledge of its gravity and rarity but with a profound serenity of spirit.” – Benedict Palpatine, in today’s farewell address.
