“Prayers go out to our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI after learning of his decision to abdicate the Papacy due to health reasons.  Personally, I was deeply saddened as he will be greatly missed.  My hope is that although he has decided to live a monastic life after his resignation which takes effect on February 28th, we will still be able to benefit from his wisdom and grace.  He is a gifted teacher and writer and we need to continue to have his clarity on important issues especially in an increasingly secularized culture.


As it was mentioned on my radio program by Ave Maria Radio’s Al Kresta, one way to honor the Pope would be to read something he has written.  You can find his many teachings, letters, papal documents at the following web sites:






Let us also ask for the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes, not only for Pope Benedict but for the College of Cardinals as they are about to begin the conclave to choose the next successor of St. Peter.”
