Pope Benedict’s ‘amazing’ energy, attentiveness

Our Rome bureau talked to Archbishop Jerome G. Hanus, who this month took part in his fifth “ad limina” trip to Rome. The visits are to report to the pope and other Vatican agencies on the status of their dioceses and to pray at the tombs of the apostles.

In the interview the archbishop talks about the differences between his “ad limina” visits with Blessed John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, but also calls “amazing” Pope Benedict’s energy with and attentiveness to the visiting bishops, especially since Pope Benedict is already older than his predecessor was when he died.
