Pope Benedict’s last public Angelus

Feb 24, 2013

Every Sunday when in Rome, the pope greets pilgrims from his study window with a few words of encouragement based on the Gospel reading of the Sunday. This tradition began with Pope John XXIII and has continued since.

A few hours ago Pope Benedict gave his last Sunday Angelus greeting to the larger-than-usual crowd in St. Peter’s Square.

The complete text of the pope’s encouragement is available here thanks to CNN:
