It is just too hard for Em. Pope Benedict to acknowledge that pope Francis is leading the Church into ruins. Because that would mean that he is also responsible - even at the root of everything - becuse of his resignation. That is why (partly) he defends pope Francis 'ad absurdum'. But at a certain moment the facts will be obvious and unmistakable. Hopefully that moment will be soon.
