Habemus Natalem!

April 16, 2007
Pope Benedict XVIYes, we do indeed have a birthday today, an 80th birthday!
Let us give thanks to God for blessing us with the great gift of Pope Benedict XVI; a humble servant, a wise theologian, a loving leader to the faithful!
It's important to pray every day for our Holy Father, but today on his birthday, let's pray in a special way for his intentions and for his needs! Let's pray that the Holy Spirit will guide him, and give him the strength, the courage, the faith, the hope, and the charity, to fulfill the great mission to which he has been called!
