Rev. Edward A. “Monk” Malloy, C.S.C., gives his reaction to Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation in a new YouTube video posted on the University of Notre Dame’s channel.
Fr. Malloy, President Emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, talks about his immediate reaction to Monday’s (Feb. 11, 2013) news and offers his perspective on what could happen next when the Pope steps down on Feb. 28, 2013.
“I was totally taken by surprise when I saw the report on the morning news. I think most of the Church was,” Fr. Malloy said.
