In this photo provided by the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Pope Benedict XVI kneels in prayer at the end of a weeklong spiritual retreat, at the Vatican, Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013. Benedict XVI has lamented the "evil, suffering and corruption" that has defaced God's creation in a final address to the officials who run the Vatican bureaucracy. Benedict spoke off-the-cuff Saturday at the end of a weeklong spiritual retreat coinciding with the Catholic Church's solemn Lenten season. For the past week, Italian Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi has led the Vatican on meditations that have covered everything from the family to denouncing the "divisions, dissent, careerism, jealousies" that afflict the Vatican bureaucracy.
