“And Here Is the Room Where Pope Benedict Slept…”

The Daily Catch - published on 06/10/16

An Aleteia correspondent is currently in Freiburg, Germany, and he’s been gracious enough to share some of what he is seeing there (hence this). Today he sends us this image of a stark, bare bedroom and writes:

Pope Benedict XVI is the pope of humility. He visited Freiburg from September 22-25 2011. He was received by the seminary of Freiburg, one of Germany’s most prestigious seminaries. It is worth noting that the pope chose to sleep in a modest room dedicated to visitors, as you can see in the picture.
