John Cavadini offered some of his own thoughts on the historical situation the Catholic Church finds it self in with the abdication of the papacy by Benedict XVI as well as his own reflections on the legacy of Benedict's papacy in a recent youtube video.
I thought the reflections were excellent!
They offered many of my own thoughts on the issues and presented a thoughtful reflection on the future. I think it would be worth your while to check it out. I have included the video below. Give it a watch and let me know what you think!
