I am Simply a Pilgrim

As of 8pm Rome time today, Benedict XVI is no longer the Pope of the Catholic Church. In his final address today he had one line that stuck out to me:

I am simply a pilgrim beginning the last leg of his pilgrimage on this Earth.

I quite like this sentiment.

Reminds me of Logion 42 in the Gospel of Thomas: Be passersby.
