The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

2013-09-15

Pope emeritus Benedict XVI always used a pencil to write his texts. Now an online campaign called Pencils for Benedict collects testimonies on how his handwritten teachings have influenced people worldwide. 

It's creators explain they came up with the idea while listening to Pope Francis' answers to journalists on the return flight from WYD.

Francis then compared living with Benedict XVI to "having grandpa at home”. And so they thought about editing a book with testimonies from people all around the world.

Testimonies cand be sent by e-mail before September 30th at info@georgganswein.com


They want to give Benedict the book along with a pencil case. This symbolic gift is meant to be a sign of fondness, respect and gratitude to the Pope emeritus and also a plea to him to never give up writing.
