Send a Farewell Message to Benedict XVI

On 28 February 2013, Benedict XVI retired from the Papacy. Here are some messages left by members of Xt3, thanking Benedict XVI for his Pontificate and for what he has done for the Church.

Let us continue to pray for Benedict XVI as he devotes his life to prayer for the Church. Let us also pray for the next Pope, whoever he may be.
