Despite lacking the public charisma of his predecessor, Pope Benedict in just eight years was able to carve out his own legacy, in significant part by continuing John Paul's work in different ways.
"Very fearlessly and courageously he's taken the Gospel right into the public square" in numerous public addresses at secular parliaments and universities, said Monsignor McPartlan.
"One of the great themes of Pope Benedict's pontificate has been to show the importance that reason has for a life of faith and the importance faith has for all of those who use their minds," said Monsignor McPartlan.
