James Brian Benestad, professor of theology at The University of Scranton, has studied the writings of Pope Benedict XVI, then Cardinal Ratzinger. He said the pope's decision was an "act of civility."

"He knew he couldn't perform the same as he used to and realized he wasn't healthy enough to do the job," Benestad said. "I think people will respect him for doing it."
He said he also "trusts his judgement," and that the pope is an "extraordinary person. Benestad met Pope Benedict before he became a pope and got to walk with him for a little bit.
"I've always admired him," Benestad stated. "I've used his works in my class. Meeting him was a very great thing for me. He did wonderful things as pope."
Among those, Benestad said, was turning out three books since becoming pope. Benestad also said Pope Benedict is a "great promoter" of the Catholic universities and communities, helped "motivate people back to their faith," and a "great defender" of faith and religious liberty.

J. Brian Benestad, a professor of theology at the University of Scranton, once walked with then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger the few hundred feet between his apartment and his office in St. Peter's Square to tell the future pope that articles by the two men had appeared back-to-back in the same edition of a theology journal.

"He's been the theologian that I have admired the most," Benestad said. "He has been a great teacher in the church and a magnificent public intellectual outside the church."
