CWN Editor's Note: In a program broadcast by a Bavarian television network, Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI has acknowledged that his voice is weak and has “great difficulty” walking as he approaches his 93rd birthday. But associates report that the former Pontiff’s mind remains sharp, and he spends much of each day in his office, reading and writing.
