Thank you, Holy Father

“As for me, my life is already being poured away as a libation, and the time has come for me to depart.

I have fought the good fight to the end; I have run the race to the finish; I have kept the faith.”

[2 Tim. 4:7]

I'm a 37-year-old lay Catholic from the diocese of Groningen-Leeuwarden. I write about the Catholic Church in the Netherlands. I not only enjoy bringing selected developments to the attention of readers, but I also think that it is sometimes important to allow a wider audience to read about the state of the Church in the Netherlands. That's why a fair number of posts about that topic will be translations of Dutch articles, episcopal writings and whatever else.

One thought on “Thank you, Holy Father”

  1. We may be religious or not, we may agree or disagree with Pope Benedict’s views, but in my opinion, we must admire a decision that places the best interest of the Catholic Church above his own prestige.
