QOTD: Pope Benedict XVI reflects on times ‘the Lord seemed to sleep’

“I have felt like St. Peter with the Apostles in the boat on the Sea of Galilee: the Lord has given us many days of sunshine and gentle breeze, days in which the catch has been abundant; [then] there have been times when the seas were rough and the wind against us, as in the whole history of the Church it has ever been – and the Lord seemed to sleep.”

— Pope Benedict XVI, addressing a crowd for the last time as pope in St. Peter’s Square on Wednesday. Benedict, who will step down Thursday, has faced scandals regarding child sexual abuse and Vatican transparency in his eight-year tenure.
