Fr. Jonathan Morris Translates Pope Benedict's Emotional Final Farewell in Castel Gandolfo
Just after Pope Benedict XVI addressed a crowd in the Italian town of Castel Gandolfo for one last time, Fox News contributor Father Jonathan Morris reacted to the final words with his own emotional remarks. Morris translated parts of the outgoing Pope's farewell, saying that he was personally moved when the Catholic church's spiritual leader "walked out without any papers, any documents" to say goodbye.
(Earlier, the pope made his final walk out of the Vatican.)
According to Father Morris, Pope Benedict told onlookers things like, "I love you," "I feel your support," "Thank you for being here," and finally, after blessing them one last time, he said "good night," before turning around and walking in.
One sign in the crowd said, "Benedict, your humility has made you bigger."
