Gehring on Benedict

Over at Faith in Public Life, John Gehring has a nice tribute to Pope Benedict XVI on this the anniversary of his resignation. It is interesting to me that so many of us who range ourselves on the left politically found much to love and admire in Benedict's papacy, which runs counter to the usual narrative.
