The Archdiocese of Baltimore will hold a Mass on Thursday in honor of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, who died Saturday. The Mass will take place Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen. “Priests throughout the Archdiocese are warmly invited to concelebrate this Mass,” Most Rev. William E. Lori, the archbishop of Baltimore, wrote on the archdiocese’s website. Lori asked the faithful to pray for the repose of the soul of the former pope, who was the first to resign in 600 years. “Pope Benedict was a man of deep faith and keen intellect who placed his considerable gifts at the service of Christ and his bride the Church,” Lori said in the statement on the archdiocese’s website.
