Pope Benedict has recently announced his retirement, and Pope Francis has decided to take a minute to speak on his predecessor!

According to The Huffington Post, Francis was speaking to a crowd of pilgrims in Saint Peter’s Square about the former Joseph Ratzenberger. “We have had a recent marvelous example of this relationship with God in our conscience,” he said. “Pope Benedict XVI has given us a great example in this sense, when the Lord made him understand , in prayer, what step he had to take. He followed, with a great sense of discernment and courage, his conscience, that is, the will of God who was speaking to his heart.”
