For the past two months or so, the news that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI is frail and close to death was being circulated far and wide, not just through the social media but also the popular WhatsApp. The personal secretary of the Pope Emeritus, Archbishop Georg Ganswein was quoted, which read, “Pope Benedict is like a candle that fades slowly. He is serene, at peace with God, with himself and the world. He can no longer walk without help and can no longer celebrate Mass.”
“If the insignificant is excluded, there is no celebration.” A video message from Fr Albert Jacobse, MHM in aid of promoting the Catholic Welfare Services charity run on 9 September 2017. The Catholic Welfare Services (CWS) needs fund to reach out to the urban poor and needy.
