It is said uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. This saying means more to Benedict XVI’s papacy than to that of any Pope in recent memory. There is little Pope Benedict XVI has either done or said that has not attracted the attention of his detractors, who are evidently resolute on putting a question mark on his moral authority and make nonsense of the person who has assured the doctrinal purity and distinctiveness of the Catholic Church for well over 30 years. He is aware of what he is up against as he keeps warning priests and the Catholic Faithful of what he calls “dangerous reductionism” that seeks to undermine anything divine.
