.- A book on all of Benedict XVI’s speeches from the moment he announced his resignation until his last day as pontiff will be published March 11.

The book’s title is “Non mi sono mai sentito solo” in Italian, which translates as “I have never felt alone.” It will also include his resignation speech, Ash Wednesday homily and address at a meeting with all of Rome’s clergy.

The Vatican’s publishing house will also release a second book on the Pope Emeritus in March, which will collect all of his general audiences from the Church’s Year of Faith.

It is titled “Beneditto XVI nell anno della Fede” or “Benedict XVI in the Year of Faith” and is the last volume of the retired Pope’s series of catecheses.

Both books are written by experts on his body of teachings.

Books that cardinals have written will not be published until after the conclave to avoid a conflict of interest with electing the new Pope.

“The general feeling around here is very strong these days,” said Fr. Giuseppe Costa, director of the Libreria Editrice Vaticana.

“We’re now waiting for the new Pope, and we will then work even more,” Fr. Costa remarked in a March 6 interview with CNA.

“These days I’m praying and reflecting a lot, but it’s a time for the Holy Spirit,” he added.
