Benedict XVI: The Pope Emeritus
This excellent new documentary produced in Europe on the life and papacy of Pope Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) shows us the great milestones of his life: renowned theology professor, prolific author, expert at the Second Vatican Council, longtime collaborator of John Paul II, and his pontificate that ended with a surprise: his resignation at the age of 86 years old. His battles for defending the faith and for transparency within the Church provoked both support and criticism. It was a long Way of the Cross for this great churchman that ended with a master lesson of humility, giving way to his successor.
