CWN Editor's Note: Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI has described himself as a man “on a pilgrimage home.” In a letter to the Italian daily Corriere della Serra, responding to an inquiry about his health, the former Pontiff said that “in the slow decline of physical strengths, inwardly I am on a pilgrimage home.” He added: “It is a great grace for me to be surrounded, on this rather tiring last piece of the road, by a love and goodness that I could not have imagined.”
