Charles MacDonald - Regarding Pope Benedict
Roman Catholics around the world were shocked today to hear the Pope will resign later this month. Pope Benedict XVI (the 16th) says he's no longer able to carry out his duties because of his health. Many years ago, in the 1960's, before he became Pope, Joseph Ratzinger was a professor in Germany. One of his students was Charles MacDonald now of Point Edward. MacDonald is a former priest and professor of theology at Cape Breton University. Earlier today he spoke to CBC reporter George Mortimer about the news.
