From Mass on Ash Wednesday.
This long ovation was only ended by our Holy Father, himself, who wanted the faithful gathered at St. Peter's to return back to a spirit of prayer. In many ways this encapsulates the entire career of Benedict XVI. For him, as it should be for all of us, it is all about the Lord Jesus! Pope Benedict knows this with every fiber of his being, and has been trying to communicate this fundamental truth to us, both in his writings and actions. He will be missed! May our Heavenly Father richly bless Pope Benedict XVI!
