BENEDICT XVI
"Let me also thank you for the prayers and support you have shown me in these days.
May God bless all of you! ”

To say farewell to Benedict XVI, thousands of pilgrims made their way to St. Peter's square to witness one of the Pope's last public events. Among cheers and applause, people held banners thanking the Pope for his eight year pontificate.

In his catechesis he talked about how Jesus was tempted out in the desert. He also explained the true meaning of Lent.

BENEDICT XVI
"The Church, which is our mother and teacher, calls all its members to a spiritual renewal. A call to refocus our energy towards God, leaving behind pride and selfishness to instead live with love. During this Year of Faith, Lenten Season is an opportunity to rediscover our faith in God, as a base for our lives and the life of the Church.”

In the next few days the Pope will begin his spiritual exercises, alongside other members of the Roman Curia. Benedict XVI's next public event will be his last Angelus, on February 24th.
