Pope Francis, more kind words on Benedict XVI

It will be easy to love a Pope who loved our dear Benedict XVI

Excerpt from Pope Francis’s address to the College of Cardinals

I extend an especially affectionate thought, filled with gratitude, to my venerable predecessor, Benedict XVI, who, during the years of his pontificate enriched and invigorated the Church with his teaching, his goodness, guidance, faith, humility, and his meekness, which will remain the spiritual patrimony of all. The Petrine ministry, lived with total dedication, found in him a wise and humble interpreter with his gaze always fixed on Christ, the Risen Christ, present and alive in the Eucharist. Our fervent prayer will always accompany him, our eternal memory, and affectionate gratitude. We feel that Benedict XVI lit a flame in the depth of our hearts, a flame that continues to burn because it will be fanned by his prayers that will continue to sustain the Church on its spiritual and missionary journey.

God Bless Pope Francis,
God Bless Benedict XVI

Extra Omnes!

The Cardinal electors have been locked in the Sistine Chapel, and we have been locked out. So all we can do now is pray and wait, and then pray a bit more.

St Joseph, pray for them.

Castel Gandolfo, Day 1

There was me thinking that His Holiness Benedict XVI would have a lie in! But according to the Vatican News service "Today, as always, His Holiness celebrated Mass at 7:00am and then prayed the Liturgy of the Hours."
