62 years as a priest.

Everything thing that I know about Joseph Ratzinger, especially from the time he  received a vocation to the priesthood as a young man, and the way in which he responded to it, speaks to me of a very great man. His greatness became particularly evident when, during the Pontificate of John Paul II, he laboured behind the scenes for the good of the Church. As Pope, Benedict XVI, he is another of those Popes who makes me think that I having been living in a time of Greatness. Even now, with his announcement that he is soon to renounce the Office of Bishop of Rome, his character is marked by greatness. 
For him, I wish that God has saved the very best wine till last.
