February 23, 2013. (Romereports.com) (-ONLY VIDEO-) In line with his schedule, at 9 a.m. Saturday morning, Benedict XVI finished his spiritual exercises. Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi led his final talk, which concluded a traditional week-long retreat during the first week of Lenten Season, with other members of the Curia.
The Pope thanked everyone from the Roman Curia that worked at his side during his eight years at the helm of the Catholic Church.
Benedict XVI will now continue with the previously scheduled events for what surely will be an emotional last five days of his pontificate.
