Pope Benedict XVI and “The Face of Jesus”

One year ago today, Josef Ratzinger/Pope Benedict XVI reached the end of his long earthly pilgrimage. He spoke and wrote many words over many decades, and they all had one ultimate purpose: to seek the face of Jesus, to look at the face of Jesus, to behold the face of God in the face of Jesus, to listen to Jesus, to follow Jesus. 

Today let us not be torn apart by forgetting the face of Jesus and grasping instead for our own abstract hypotheses.✝️
