Welcome to Generation Benedict!

Last edited 20th February 2013

Pope Benedict has been responsible for the conversion, reversion, vocation and the deepening of faith of many young Catholics. Pope Benedict will be truly missed by our generation. Those who have met him look upon him fondly as a gentle grandfatherly figure, as he has pointed us towards Christ, at a point in time when many of us were at a crossroads, telling us not to settle for second best, but to strive for sainthood.
