There was a good personal and spiritual level between the emeritus and the incumbent Pope, which Francis ultimately used. Therefore, the death of Benedict “didn’t make things any easier” for Francis’ pontificate, analyzed the head of the Rome office of Kathpress and the German Catholic news agency KNA.
Benedict XVI I have never attacked Franziskus’s course head-on in the last ten years, Ring-Eifel continued. Therefore there was something like a “standstill agreement” between the wings of the church. Francis’ very far-reaching will to reform, who has convened a synod to do this and where it is about more participation by lay people in the church, “that goes very against the grain of the conservatives”. “More tension will build up there in the near future” and in this situation Francis no longer has the old pope at his side to support him.
The requiem for Benedict was once again the “moment of the two popes”, emphasized the former KNA editor-in-chief. Francis had to be very careful with his words in his eulogy and “solved it fantastically”. “The great farewell gesture with the hand on the coffin” once again underlined the inner connection between these two very different men.
