According to Holy See Press Office Director Joaquin Navarro-Valls, Pope Benedict’s new book could be finished before the end of the summer.
The Pope, who began the book three years ago, has reportedly been working on it every day of his summer vacation in the Valle d’Aosta region of northern Italy. Yesterday, he left there to spend the remainder of the summer at the papal summer residence of Castalgandolfo, south of Rome.
Navarro-Valls noted that the spirituality of Saint Benedict would be one of possibly several themes of the Holy Father’s new book.
