"Today I feel that I need to support more the Church with what I'm doing with my ordinary life by praying more for the Holy Father and doing my work well and trying to offer it.”
"It's a moment so special because I didn't know that this was going to happen when I came here and this is a historical moment. so it's so special to me to see the Pope, and this will be the only opportunity for me to see the him.”
Since the early morning on Wednesday, they waited for the chance to see the Pope inside Paul VI Hall. They wanted to show their appreciation to him and what he's done for the Church.
"I think that he helped us to being true Christians with the doctrine that he imparts to us.”
"I don't know, because he did so many things and it's hard to point only one”. "He has been a very important successor.”
They poured in from all parts of Rome and the world, surrounding Benedict XVI with their warmth and well wishes. Even more are expected to arrive in the coming days to see him and thank him until his last moment as Pope.
