On leaving the Vatican after his abdication: “I was deeply moved. The cordiality of the farewell, also the tears of my collaborators. [His voice breaks with emotion.] On the roof of the Casa Bonus Pastor there was written in huge letters «Dio gliene renda merito» [“May God reward you”]. (The Pope weeps) I was really deeply moved. In any case, while I hovered overhead and began to hear the bells of Rome tolling, I knew that I could be thankful and my state of mind on the most profound level was gratitude.”
— Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (23 May 2016)

Funny and Inspired sayings of my Grandchildren
published 17 June 2011 by Dr. Ronda Chervin

The budding musician: When the priest was preaching at Pentecost that the laity should transform the world, I whispered to Max, pianist and composer of 15 years – “later I’ll ask you how music fits with transforming the world.” He replied on the way to the car “That’s simple. Music comes from the Holy Spirit.” Asked whether cacophony came from the Holy Spirit, he replied – “that’s not really music.”

The five year old: I casually mentioned something planned for the next day and asked what her father thought about doing that. “I don’t think Papa likes to think about the future at all.”
