Pope Benedict XVI’s address to the public from Vatican.va:

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I offer a warm and affectionate greeting to the English-speaking pilgrims and visitors who have joined me for this, my last General Audience. Like Saint Paul, whose words we heard earlier, my heart is filled with thanksgiving to God who ever watches over his Church and her growth in faith and love, and I embrace all of you with joy and gratitude.

During this Year of Faith, we have been called to renew our joyful trust in the Lord’s presence in our lives and in the life of the Church. I am personally grateful for his unfailing love and guidance in the eight years since I accepted his call to serve as the Successor of Peter. I am also deeply grateful for the understanding, support and prayers of so many of you, not only here in Rome, but also throughout the world.

The decision I have made, after much prayer, is the fruit of a serene trust in God’s will and a deep love of Christ’s Church. I will continue to accompany the Church with my prayers, and I ask each of you to pray for me and for the new Pope. In union with Mary and all the saints, let us entrust ourselves in faith and hope to God, who continues to watch over our lives and to guide the journey of the Church and our world along the paths of history.

I commend all of you, with great affection, to his loving care, asking him to strengthen you in the hope which opens our hearts to the fullness of life that he alone can give. To you and your families, I impart my blessing. Thank you!

五萬信眾梵京支持教宗 本篤勉勵抗拒誘惑回歸信仰

【公教報】(綜合梵蒂岡電台/外電訊)教宗本篤宣布辭職後、二月十七日主持梵蒂岡活動時,獲以萬計信眾支持,他們把聖伯多廣場擠得滿滿,拉上橫額感謝教宗。
教宗本篤十六世於四旬期首主日在梵蒂岡帶領聖伯多祿廣場上超過五萬名信眾誦念三鐘經。他發表講話時指出,信德年內,四旬期更是個重新發現信仰的良機,又說不應受誘惑而誤認天主的形象,去牟取權力與私利。
面對廣場上熱情的群眾,本篤感謝信徒為教會、他本人和下一任教宗祈禱。談到當天耶穌三退誘惑的主日讀經,這些試探的核心都是利用天主來牟取私利,要人著重成就或物質財富,本篤指試探者「不直接將人推向惡,而將人推向虛偽的善,使人相信真正的現實就是權力,也是首先要滿足的基本需求」。

Faithful throw big farewell at Pope’s last general audience

Catholic Register — VATICAN CITY – The last general audience in St. Peter’s Square turned into a farewell party with balloons, flowers, flags, posters, cheers, standing ovations and a touching thank-you speech from Pope Benedict XVI.
Authorities estimated about 130,000 people were in attendance, most of them packed in the square, with some spillover onto the long boulevard in front of the basilica.
Some children took off school and held handmade signs, babies were bundled up tight against the chill and pilgrims’ groups unfurled long banners to the Pope such as: “We’re always with you” and “You will never be alone.”
