Pope Benedict XVI took a weekend jaunt up to Pavia this weekend to venerate the remains of St. Augustine, Bishop, Doctor of the Church, and patron saint of beer brewers (well, among many other things). Much has been made (to the point of beating a dead horse) about his preference for Augustine over, say

The American Papist (who I just realized is Ed Peters' son) has pictures and links.

Zenit has an interview with Father Rovert Prevost, prior general of the Augustinians, who invited the pope to visit Augustine's tomb.

If you scroll to the bottom of this page you can find some unofficial translations of the Holy Father's addresses.

Two years ago now, after the First Vespers of this Feast, John Paul II ended his earthly life. In dying, he entered the light of Divine Mercy, of which, beyond death and starting from God, he now speaks to us in a new way.

Happy Birthday Holy Father!


Today Pope Benedict XVI celebrates his eightieth birthday. Yesterday he celebrated Mass in St. Peter's to mark that occsaion as well as the second anniversary (April 19th) of his pontificate.

Gerald of the closed cafeteria was there and has photos. So was/does Fr. Z.

In commemoration, the mainstream press has spent the last three weeks telling us that the pope is MIA, backward, old, and an intolerant jerk.

And many more!
