His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI

Press Statement
John Kerry
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
February 27, 2013


The United States sends its best wishes to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI as he leaves the Vatican after years of service and dedication to God, the Catholic Church, and world peace. As the papal conclave assembles, I look forward to continuing our important relationship with the Vatican and working with the new pope to foster dialogue and promote human rights and human dignity throughout the world. On this day, I keep Pope Benedict in my prayers and wish him well as he enters into retirement.
