"Awesome God Moments" In My Lifetime...Story 1

Pope Benedict XVI's Farewell Speech (FULL-TEXT).

Like the Apostle Paul in the Biblical text that we have heard, I
feel in my heart that I have to especially thank God who guides and
builds up the Church, who plants His Word and thus nourishes the faith
in His People. At this moment my heart expands and embraces the whole
Church throughout the world and I thank God for the 'news'
that, in these years of my Petrine ministry, I have received about the
faith in the Lord
Jesus Christ
 see Jesus.



Jesus Christ

40 days after Resurrection, ascended into heaven. [N.T.: Acts 1:1–11]

See : Ascension



Jesus Christ

kind to the poor, forgiving to the sinful. [N.T.
 and for the love that truly circulates in
the Body of the Church, making it to live in the love and the hope that
opens us to and guides us towards the fullness of life, towards our
heavenly homeland.

I feel that I am carrying everyone with me in prayer in this
God-given moment when I am collecting every meeting, every trip, every
pastoral visit. I am gathering everyone and everything in prayer to
entrust it to the Lord: so that we may be filled with the knowledge of
His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding in order to live
in a manner worthy of the Lord and His love, bearing fruit in every good
work (cf. Col 1:9-10).

At this moment I have great confidence because I know, we all know,
that the Gospel's Word of truth is the strength of the Church; it
is her life. The Gospel purifies and renews, bearing fruit, wherever the
community of believers hears it and welcomes God's grace in truth
and in love. This is my confidence, this is my joy.

When, on 19 April almost eight years ago I accepted to take on the
Petrine ministry, I had the firm certainty that has always accompanied
me: this certainty for the life of the Church from the Word of God. At
that moment, as I have already expressed many times, the words that
resounded in my heart were: Lord, what do You ask of me? It is a great
weight that You are placing on my shoulders but, if You ask it of me, I
will cast my nets at your command, confident that You will guide me,
even with all my weaknesses. And eight years later I can say that the
Lord has guided me. He has been close to me. I have felt His presence
every day. It has been a stretch of the Church's path that has had
moments of joy and light, but also difficult moments. I felt like St.
Peter and the Apostles in the boat on the See of
Galilee
 , region, N Israel, roughly the portion north of the plain of Esdraelon. Galilee was the chief scene of the ministry of Jesus.
. The Lord has
given us many days of sunshine and light breezes, days when the fishing
was plentiful, but also times when the water was rough and the winds
against us, just as throughout the whole history of the Church, when the
Lord seemed to be sleeping. But I always knew that the Lord is in that
boat and I always knew that the boat of the Church is not mine, not
ours, but is His. And the Lord will not let it sink. He is the one who
steers her, of course also through those He has chosen because that is
how He wanted it. This was and is a certainty that nothing can
tarnish

n 1. surface discoloration or loss of luster by metals. Under oral conditions, it often results from hard and soft deposits.
2. a chemical process by which a metal surface is discolored or its luster destroyed.
.
And that is why my heart today is filled with gratitude to God, because
He never leftathe whole Church or meawithout His consolation, His light,
or His love.

We are in the Year of Faith, which I desired precisely in order to
strengthen our faith in God in a context that seems to
relegate

 it more
and more to the background. I would like to invite everyone to renew
their firm trust in the Lord, to entrust ourselves like children to
God's arms, certain that those arms always hold us up and are what
allow us to walk forward each day, even when it is a struggle. I would
like everyone to feel beloved of that God who gave His Son for us and
who has shown us His boundless love. I would like everyone to feel the
joy of being Christian. In a beautiful prayer, which can be recited
every morning, say: 'I
adore

2. To regard with deep, often rapturous love. See Synonyms at revere1.

3.
 you, my God and I love you with all my
heart. Thank you for having created me, for having made me
Christian...' Yes, we are happy for the gift of faith. It is the
most precious thing, which no one can take from us! Let us thank the
Lord for this every day, with prayer and with a coherent Christian life.
God loves us, but awaits us to also love Him!

It is not only God who I wish to thank at this time. A pope is not
alone in guiding Peter's
barque
 see bark.
, even if it is his primary
responsibility. I have never felt alone in bearing the joy and the
weight of the Petrine ministry. The Lord has placed at my side so many
people who, with generosity and love for God and the Church, have helped
me and been close to me. First of all, you, dear Brother Cardinals: your
wisdom, your advice, and your friendship have been precious to me. My
collaborators, starting with my secretary of state who has accompanied
me faithfully over the years; the Secretariat of State and the whole of
the
Roman Curia

, as well as all those who, in their various areas, serve
the Holy See. There are many faces that are never seen, remaining in
obscurity, but precisely in their silence, in their daily dedication in
a spirit of faith and humility, they were a sure and reliable support to
me. A special thought goes to the Church of Rome, my diocese! I cannot
forget my Brothers in the episcopate and in the priesthood,
consecrated

 persons, and the entire People of God. In my pastoral visits, meetings,
audiences, and trips I always felt great care and deep affection, but I
have also loved each and every one of you, without exception, with that
pastoral love that is the heart of every pastor, especially the Bishop
of Rome, the Successor of the Apostle Peter. Every day I held each of
you in prayer, with a father's heart.

I wish to send my greetings and my thanks to all: a pope's
heart extends to the whole world. And I would like to express my
gratitude to the Diplomatic Corps
accredited

 to the Holy See, which
makes the great family of Nations present here. Here I am also thinking
of all those who work for good communication and I thank them for their
important service.

At this point I would also like to
wholeheartedly
  
adj.
Marked by unconditional commitment, unstinting devotion, or unreserved enthusiasm:



whole
 thank all of the
many people around the world who, in recent weeks, have sent me touching
tokens of concern, friendship, and prayer. Yes, the Pope is never alone.
I feel this again now in such a great way that it touches my heart. The
Pope belongs to everyone and many people feel very close to him.
It's true that I receive letters from the world's
notablesafrom heads of states, from religious leaders, from
representatives of the world of culture, etc. But I also receive many
letters from ordinary people who write to me simply from their hearts
and make me feel their affection, which is born of our being together
with Christ Jesus, in the Church.

These people do not write to me the way one would write, for
example, to a prince or a dignitary that they don't know. They
write to me as brothers and sisters or as sons and daughters, with the
sense of a very affectionate family tie. In this you can touch what the
Church isanot an organization, not an association for religious or
humanitarian ends, but a living body, a communion of brothers and
sisters in the Body of Jesus Christ who unites us all. Experiencing the
Church in this way and being able to almost touch with our hands the
strength of His truth and His love is a reason for joy at a time when
many are speaking of its decline. See how the Church is alive today!

In these last months I have felt that my strength had diminished
and I asked God earnestly in prayer to enlighten me with His light to
make me make the right decision, not for my own good, but for the good
of the Church. I have taken this step in full awareness of its
seriousness and also its newness, but with a profound peace of mind.
Loving the Church also means having the courage to make difficult,

v.tr.
 choices, always keeping in mind the good of the Church, not of
oneself.

Allow me here to return once again to 19 April, 2005. The gravity
of the decision lay precisely in the fact that, from that moment on, I
was always and for always engaged by the Lord. Alwaysawhoever assumes
the Petrine ministry no longer has any privacy. He belongs always and
entirely to everyone, to the whole Church. His life, so to speak, is
totally deprived of its private dimension. I experienced, and I am
experiencing it precisely now, that one receives life precisely when
they give it. Before I said that many people who love the Lord also love

St. Peter's

 Successor and are fond of him; that the Pope truly has
brothers and sisters, sons and daughters all over the world and that he
feels safe in the embrace of their communion; because he no longer
belongs to himself but he belongs to all and all belong to him.

'Always' is also 'forever'--there is no return
to private life. My decision to
renounce

 the active exercise of the
ministry does not revoke this. I am not returning to private life, to a
life of trips, meetings, receptions, conferences, etc. I am not
abandoning the cross, but am remaining beside the Crucified Lord in a
new way. I no longer bear the power of the office for the governance of
the Church, but I remain in the service of prayer, within St.
Peter's
paddock

, so to speak. St. Benedict, whose name I bear as
Pope, will be a great example to me in this. He has shown us the way for
a life that, active or passive, belongs wholly to God's work.

I also thank each and every one of you for the respect and
understanding with which you have received this important decision. I
will continue to accompany the Church's journey through prayer and
reflection, with the dedication to the Lord and His Bride that I have
tried to live every day up to now and that I want to always live. I ask
you to remember me to God, and above all to pray for the Cardinals who
are called to such an important task, and for the new Successor of the
Apostle Peter. Many the Lord accompany him with the light and strength
of His Spirit.

We call upon the maternal intercession of Mary, the Mother of God
and of the Church, that she might accompany each of us and the entire

ecclesial

a. 1. Ecclesiastical.
 community. We entrust ourselves to her with deep confidence.

Dear friends! God guides His Church, always sustaining her even and
especially in difficult times. Let us never lose this vision of faith,
which is the only true vision of the path of the Church and of the
world. In our hearts, in the heart of each one of you, may there always
be the joyous certainty that the Lord is beside us, that He does not
abandon us, that He is near and embraces us with His love. Thank you.
