St. Peter's shadow fell on us through Benedict XVI

Father Thomas Rosica, CSB, was captivated by the writings of Benedict XVI, now Pope Emeritus, and writes that Benedict's travels were like St. Peter's shadow moving among the people.
For the past eight years, the shadow of Peter has been falling upon us in no small way. And that shadow, which is God's healing touch, covers us all with mercy, healing, and peace.

When Pope Benedict walked among us, he did more than connect with us. He bonded. He moved multitudes. He taught the nations. He introduced us again to Jesus Christ. He showed remarkable courage, wisdom, compassion and humility. He suffered bitterly at the hands of those closest to him who let him down. He remained serene and joyful through it all.
