EWTN plans to broadcast a conference commemorating the one-year anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI’s passing.

Remembering Pope Benedict XVI: A Year After His Passing

A gathering of scholars, experts, and close companions of the late Pope Benedict XVI is scheduled to convene in Rome at the Benedict XVI Hall of the Campo Santo Teutonico within the Vatican.

This assembly, set for December 30–31, marks the one-year anniversary of the revered pontiff’s passing.

The primary focus of this gathering is to reflect on and discuss the enduring legacy that Pope Benedict XVI left behind.

Partnership and Broadcast

Collaboratively organized by EWTN, the Fundatio Christiana Virtus Association, and the Joseph Ratzinger-Benedict XVI Vatican Foundation, this conference holds significant importance.

Scheduled to be broadcasted on EWTN throughout December 31, commencing at 6:30 a.m. ET, the event aims to commemorate the late pontiff’s life and teachings.

The partnership forged among these esteemed organizations underscores the widespread reverence for Pope Benedict XVI’s contributions.

Exploring Key Themes

Two distinguished figures, Father Vincent Twomey and Father Federico Lombardi, have been entrusted with moderating the discussions. They will delve into the theme “Benedict XVI, Memory and Legacy,” steering conversations that aim to encapsulate the profound impact and enduring imprint of the late pope.

Furthermore, Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller and Matthew Bunson, EWTN’s vice president and editorial director, are slated to engage in discussions centered around “The Center of Benedict XVI’s Theology: Jesus Christ.” This thematic exploration is poised to unravel the theological depth that characterized Pope Benedict XVI’s teachings, with a special emphasis on his understanding and portrayal of Jesus Christ.
