It didn't seem quite so real as today that Benedict is no longer the Pope. I really liked Benedict. He was so cute in his red hat and shoes.
Most of all I liked that he oozed humility and kindness. He was a true servant of God.
I pray that the next Pope will be as strong and orthodox as Benedict with his great humility and kindness. But, the next Pope needs to be strong in body as well. Someone who can lead the Church through the rough times that are ahead. Someone who people will follow. Someone who will make the Church stronger.
