Pope screens film about his pontificate

Catholic World News - July 30, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI attended an advance screening of a film about his pontificate on July 29 at his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo.

After watching Five years of Pope Benedict XVI, by the German director Michael Mandlik, the Holy Father reflected that the film showed “a young Church,” full of vigor and faith. This Church, he said, “though as we know she suffers much, is nonetheless a joyful Church.”

Regarding his own leadership, the Pope said that the papacy is “a burden no one can bear with his own strength alone.” He continues, he said, “only because the Lord carries us and carries me.”
