CWN Editor's Note: In his homily at the funeral of Pope Benedict XVI, Pope Francis said that the work of a pastor is “devotion sustained by the consolation of the Spirit, who always precedes the pastor in his mission.”

He concluded by saying of his deceased predecessor: “God’s faithful people, gathered here, now accompanies and entrusts to Him the life of the one who was their pastor.”
