Vatican City, Feb 13, 2013 / 03:45 am (CNA/EWTN News) – Two days after saying he will resign, Pope Benedict XVI said that he has been able to feel, “almost physically,” the prayers and love that have been poured out for him.

“I have felt, almost physically, your prayers in these days which are not easy for me, the strength which the love of the Church and your prayers brings to me,” he said at the beginning of his weekly general audience.

“Continue to pray for me and for the future pope, the Lord will guide us!” he told the thousands of pilgrims.
