When it comes to theology and Church teaching, Pope Benedict XVI will long be considered a heavy hitter and a gift to Church theologians for years to come. The former Pope wrote 3 encyclicals on spiritual, social and economic issues during his Papacy. Among those is the encyclical ‘God is Love’ where he wrote, “being a Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person.” Associate Professor of Theology at Catholic University of America, Dr. Chad Pecknold, joins to share what one element of Pope Benedict’s teaching stands out to him the most. Despite Pope Benedict’s reputation as a theologian and a thinker, a headline called him “The Pope of the Head and the Heart.” Dr. Pecknold tells us whether he believes the Pope had both. On the flip side, the former Pope has also been called a man at odds with the modern world. Dr. Pecknold fills us in on his response to that. The theology professor discusses how the former Pope impacted his life.
