Cardinal Ruini on the Mind of Pope Benedict XVI

I feel a special link to Cardinal Ruini, because when I was in Rome I attended a Mass that he said in the Clementine Chapel one morning that included a priest, three Italian women and me. After the Mass the Cardinal went to the tomb of Pope John Paul II, knelt, prayed with great emotion and openly wept.

Sandro Magister gives a translation of Cardinal Ruini's brilliant talk recently to the priests of Rome on the thought of Pope Benedict.
