Benedict XVI, Pope of Christian Unity

Fr. John Zuhlsdorf (Fr. Z) has a good idea:  when speaking and writing about Pope Benedict XVI, describe him as the "Pope of Christian Unity".  This is not an attempt to wish something good into being; rather, it is an acknowledgment of what Pope Benedict has been working to achieve with the Orthodox, the Society of St. Pius X, and the Anglicans.

I think that makes a lot of sense. And even though dialogue with Muslims is interfaith, he has helped, it appears, to bring more serious dialogue with them as well. He is a magnificent Pontiff!
