This essay at El Pais by Mario Vargas Llosa on the legacy of Pope Benedict XVI is one of the most insightful I have read, and I am sure I missed some of it in translation. I have not found an English translation of it but if someone is more facile than I am, and undertakes the task, please send it to me so that I can post it.
