Pope Benedict XVI and his retirement

Vatican. Jan. 27, 2004

Benedict has suggested that he will live a life of prayer in the monastery. Whether that means he will be cloistering himself, or becoming a hermit, is unclear. He could ask to be received into a religious order that lives by a rule and practices some form of solitary prayer, such as the Carthusians or the Camaldolese. He may also choose a simple life of prayer, contemplation and writing aided by his staff.
