Three Popes, one photo

Three Popes, one photo

I just thought this was kind of cool. John Paul II and his immediate successors, Benedict XVI and Francis. (HT to First Things for posting this photo)

  1. I like this. It gives me, at least, some confidence in the continuity of the church. These men worked together, walked together, talked together, prayed together, worshipped together… probably cried together, laughed together… Three separate men… but one church and one mission.

  2. Ya, it’s really nice. JPII and Ratzinger were really close. They had dinner every Friday night and Ratzinger provided him with much of his philosophical expertise for some of his encyclicals.
