Theological impact of Benedict XVI assessed, on his 90th birthday
As Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI turned 90, two interesting articles appeared to measure his impact on Catholic theology:
In the National Catholic Register, Father Raymond de Souza observes that the retired Pope—who was baptized at the Easter vigil on the very day of his birth—has always centered his thought on the action of the liturgy.
For Crux, Father Robert Imbelli makes a related point, emphasizing Benedict’s focus on “active participation” in the liturgy, and explains what that terms means to the former Pope.
