Pope Benedict XVI funeral: Tens of thousands attend Vatican Mass – BBC News appeared on www.bbc.co.uk by BBC News.
While communion is taking place we can bring you more of the Pope’s words from his Homily for Benedict XVI.
Pope Francis used Jesus’ last words throughout the homily: “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit”.
He said that worshippers would wish to do the same for Benedict, saying: “Holding fast to the Lord’s last words and to the witness of his entire life, we too, as an ecclesial community, want to follow in his steps and to commend our brother into the hands of the Father.
“May those merciful hands find his lamp alight with the oil of the Gospel that he spread and testified to for his entire life.”
The Pope said that the crowds had come to entrust Benedict’s life to God, and to show undying love.
He finished by saying: “We want to do this with the same wisdom, tenderness and devotion that he bestowed upon us over the years.
“Together, we want to say: “Father, into your hands we commend his spirit”. Benedict, faithful friend of the Bridegroom, may your joy be complete as you hear his voice, now and forever.”
