The true legacy of Benedict XVI

For those who have been trying in the past few days to denigrate Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, let us remind them what he really did for the Church: 

2005: election of Benedict XVI;

2006: Lifting of declarations of excommunication from the SSPX Bishops;

2007: the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum;

2008: Canonical Erection of the Institute of the Good Shepherd;

2009: Correction of the translation of the Novus Ordo Missae imposed; 

2009: Anglicanorum Cœtibus;

2010: Doctrinal talks with SSPX begin;

2011: Instruction Universae Ecclesiae. Its main effect: overrides the bishops, who are the main problem. But this and the motu proprio re-taken back by the current holder of the Office.
