He reached out with understanding to all Christians, whatever their faith. He influenced many governments and helped change our world. Pope Benedict XVI made history by resigning at the age of 86. He will be remembered as a scholar and of his efforts to clean up the sex scandal among priests and deal with financial problems at the Vatican. His legacy includes a move toward evangelism and calling nonpracticing Catholics to come home.
