What Does A Pope Do When He Retires?

Catch up on reading, of course!

It is reported that His Holiness, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has brought with him and is currently (re-)reading Hans Urs von Balthasar's The Glory of the Lord: A Theological Aesthetics (which consists of 7 volumes). I have written on the first volume, Seeing The Form, as it relates to the interpretation of Scripture. Give it a read and then I would recommend taking after our dear Pope Emeritus' example and read this great work by von Balthasar.
