The Sacred Page, a blog about Catholic biblical theology, published a piece this morning with Scott Hahn’s comments on the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. The text from the Sacred Page can be found at http://www.thesacredpage.com/2013/02/scott-hahn-on-popes-resignation.html?m=1. Scott Hahn’s observation describes Pope Benedict XVI making a pious and symbolic gesture on two occasions to Pope Celestine V.
On the Sacred Page’s blog, you can see photos from the Pope’s first gesture at the tomb of St. Celestine V. In the background of these photos is rubble from the 2009 L’Aquila earthquake, which occurred just weeks before the Pope’s visit.
