2014-10-27

The Vatican Gardens now has a new sculpture in honor of Benedict XVI. It was created by Italian artist Fernando Dalia and Pope Francis was there to celebrate the big moment. 

As he addressed the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the Pope talked about Benedict XVI's character and the legacy of his pontificate. 
 
POPE FRANCIS
"This sculpture of Benedict XVI reflects the persona and face of dear Pope Ratzinger. It evokes his spirit. His teachings, his example, his works, his devotion to the Church and his  current monastic life.”

Pope Francis referenced the ties between religion and science, which is a subject  deeply studied by Benedict XVI. He also highlighted the important contributions of the Pope Emeritus. 
 
POPE FRANCIS
"Benedict XVI: A great Pope. Great in his strength and in the presence of his intelligence.  Great for his relevant contribution to theology, great for his love for the Church and mankind, great for his virtue and piety.”

Towards the end, the Pope encouraged the Pontifical Academy of the Sciences to continue its studies on the relationship between faith and science.
