Vatican City (AsiaNews) - Since the day the Apostolic See became vacant, a photo tribute to the ministry of the pope emeritus was posted on the website of the Holy See. It includes 62 pictures with quotes from the highlights of the pontificate of Benedict XVI: from his greetings to the faithful on the day of his election, on 19 April 2005, to his renunciation during the consistory for the canonisation of the Martyrs of Otranto.
The tribute, which has references to speeches the pope emeritus made on various occasions, was prepared by the Vatican's Internet Service. Most of the photos come from the Osservatore Romano. It is available in almost all of the languages of the website, except for Chinese and Latin. To see the English edition, please click here.
