In Depth

Pope Benedict XVI

Worsening health and death



On 28 December 2022, Pope Francis said at the end of his audience that Benedict was “very sick” and asked God to “comfort him and support him in this testimony of love for the Church until the end”.

The same day, Matteo Bruni, the director of the Holy See Press Office, stated that “in the last few hours there has been an aggravation of [Benedict’s] health due to advancing age” and that he was under medical care.

Bruni also stated that Francis visited Benedict at the Mater Ecclesiae Monastery after the audience.

Benedict died on 31 December 2022 at 9:34 am Central European Time at the Mater Ecclesiae Monastery.

He was 95 years old.

His long-time secretary, Georg Gänswein, reported that his last words were “Signore ti amo” (Italian for ‘Lord, I love you’).


Public Health

Contraception and HIV/AIDS



In 2005, the Pope listed several ways to combat the spread of HIV, including chastity, fidelity in marriage, and anti-poverty efforts; he also rejected the use of condoms.

The alleged Vatican investigation of whether there are any cases when married persons may use condoms to protect against the spread of infections surprised many Catholics in the wake of John Paul II’s consistent refusal to consider condom use in response to AIDS.

However, the Vatican has since stated that no such change in the Church’s teaching can occur.

TIME also reported in its edition of 30 April 2006 that the Vatican’s position remains what it always has been with Vatican officials “flatly dismiss[ing] reports that the Vatican is about to release a document that will condone any condom use.”

In March 2009, the Pope stated:

I would say that this problem of AIDS cannot be overcome merely with money, necessary though it is.

If there is no human dimension, if Africans do not help, the problem cannot be overcome by the distribution of prophylactics: on the contrary, they increase it.

The solution must have two elements: firstly, bringing out the human dimension of sexuality, that is to say a spiritual and human renewal that would bring with it a new way of behaving towards others, and secondly, true friendship offered above all to those who are suffering, a willingness to make sacrifices and to practise self-denial, to be alongside the suffering.

In November 2010, in a book-length interview, Benedict, using the example of male prostitutes, stated that the use of condoms, with the intention of reducing the risk of HIV infection, may be an indication that the prostitute is intending to reduce the evil connected with his immoral activity.

In the same interview, the Pope also reiterated the traditional teaching of the Church that condoms are not seen as a “real or moral solution” to the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Further, in December 2010, the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith explained that Benedict’s statement did not constitute a legitimization of either contraception or prostitution, which remains gravely immoral.
