Thank you, Holy Father

Say a prayer of thanks today as our Holy Father Benedict exercises the grace of "strengthening the brethren" as granted by Christ to Peter and all his successors, Vicars of Christ on earth. He does so as he gives the gift of his new encyclical, ON INTEGRAL HUMAN DEVELOPMENT IN CHARITY AND TRUTH. He promulgated the new teaching earlier today and you can read it here.

And for those of us who celebrate our natal anniversaries today, an awesome way to mark the day.

Thank you, Holy Father.

We thank you mother (and father) too! Happy Birthday!

“A priest is not born of an angel but of a mother. He is chosen from amongst the people, is anointed with the Sacrament of Priesthood and returned back to the people,
to the Church – into their care, their prayer and their love. The priest is a sign of the omnipotence of our God. Pray for priests. Love them. Support them. Help them to be holy. We are weak and fragile. If your knees are not bent in prayer for us, we stumble and fall. We need your prayer.” - Fr. Jozo Zovko ofm

Thank you for visiting.
