Pope Benedict XVI definetely wasn't a political leader, neither in the church nor in the world. His sensational abdication, however, could be the beginning of a transition to political leadership in the catholic church in future. He gives an example for his successors, he underscores the necessity to keep pace with the requirements of the modern world and networks and the disadvantages of high age. Now, the gates are open for a young and modern new pope. Perhaps Benedicts legacy lies more in the things he didn't do himself in order to leave them to his successors - if not to say, to force his successors to do it.


What an indictment.
