Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, understands Pope Benedict's reasons for resigning and supports his decision. The archbishop met the Holy Father years ago and was impressed by his enthusiasm, intelligence, and clarity.
Pope Benedict XVI will be remembered for being "a great teaching Pope," said Archbishop Miller. He expressed sadness about the Pope's decision to resign and admiration for his courage in making the decision.

"The Church is losing not only a great historic figure, but also a father and a friend," the archbishop wrote in a press release. "The Holy Father has been a tremendous source of truth, stability, and inspiration, not only for the past eight years of his papacy, but also for decades as a theologian and a scholar."
