The Cardinals Thank Benedict XVI

A telegram - signed by the Dean of the College of Cardinals, Cardinal Angelo Sodano – was sent to Benedict XVI by the prelates which met on 5 March, in the Synod Hall at the Third General Congregation:

The Cardinal Fathers meeting in the Vatican for their General Congregations with a view to the upcoming Conclave send you in unison a devout greeting, together with the expression of their renewed gratitude for the whole of your luminous Petrine ministry and for the example you have given them of generous pastoral solicitude for the good of the Church and of the world. Their gratitude is intended to represent all the gratitude of the Church for your tireless work in the Lord's vineyard. Lastly, the members of the College of Cardinals trust in your prayers for them and, likewise, for the entire Church.
