Benedict's Announcement Last Year Changed Church

Pope Benedict XVI's longtime private secretary says his boss' stunning decision to resign, paved the way for the "enormous impact" Pope Francis is having. Monsignor Georg Gaenswein's comments Monday came on the eve of the first anniversary of Benedict's retirement announcement. The historic announcement changed the course of the 2,000-year-old Catholic Church and led to the historic election of the first Jesuit pope and the first pontiff from Latin America. Gaenswein told Vatican Television, "We are all seeing the impact that Pope Francis is having on the world ... and this impact was also facilitated by Pope Benedict in resigning."
