Pope-emeritus Benedict: Church is united, Francis is Pope
June 28, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI emphasized the unity of the Catholic Church, and stressed that Pope Francis is the only current Pontiff, in an interview published by the Italian daily Corriere della Sera. “The unity of the Church has always been in danger,” the former Pope said. “In the end the awareness that the Church is and must remain united has always prevailed.” Massimo Franco, who conducted the interview, wrote that many cardinals and bishops have consulted with Benedict, “expressing their criticisms and their perplexity toward the current pontificate.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
