This week’s collector’s issue provides full coverage of Benedict XVI’s last days as pope, from his emotional Mass on Ash Wednesday to his masterly address to priests in Rome. Plus, a panel of writers consider his legacy. Stuart Reid, Damian Thompson, Anna Arco, Conrad Black, Paschal Uche, Fr Tim Finigan, Mgr Keith Newton and Bishop Philip Egan, among many others, reflect on his gifts to the Church. Meanwhile, George Weigel says we are seeing the birth of a new Catholicism; Patrick Pullicino explains how to inject compassion into the NHS; and Jenny McCartney wonders if the end of the Sun’s Page 3 girl is in sight.
