A couple hours left until the seat of Peter is vacant. As I type this I'm watching the soon to be His Holiness Bnedict XVI, Pontifex Emeritus, board the helicopter for Castel Gandalfo.
Pope Benedict wasn't the reigning pope when I was born, or the pope that was reigning most of my life, but he was the Pope that saw my "conversion" from a misinformed Catholicism to a stronger and a more aware faith. I will miss him.

Update: Papa Benedict just made what is perhaps his last public speech, a brief thanks for support, and bidding the folks good night.

Buenas noches y Adios, Benedicto, que Dios te bendiga y la Virgen te cubra con su manto.
