Default God told Pope Benedict to resign

Former Pope Benedict has said he resigned after "God told me to" during what he called a "mystical experience", a Catholic news agency reported.

"God told me to do it," the Zenith agency quoted Benedict as saying to a visitor to the convent in the Vatican gardens where he is living out his retirement in near isolation.

And this probably happened during a series of meditations and occurrences during the discernment period, and then a confirmation. What Pope Emeritus says about Pope Francis, is just another confirmation.

The Peace of the Lord is with His servant B16.

God speaks to us in many . Whether we listen depends on whether we are paying attention.
