Benedict Resigned Because He Saw "No Danger For The Church"

Benedict XVI didn't resign in 2013 because of problems in the Church, his secretary Archbishop Gänswein told EWTN.com (November 30).

Benedict said several times, “I can go now because there is no danger for the Church (sic!). When a wolf comes, the shepherd cannot leave. There is no danger. I can [go].” According to Gänswein, Benedict has never regretted his decision.

Benedict XVI never commented on Francis’ controversial synods of bishops. Gänswein respected his silence and never asked.

When Benedict heard about Francis' Traditionis custodes, he was “very, very sad.” Gänswein told Benedict in 2021 that TC would cause many problems. Benedict replied, “I hope God will help us.”
