Two gems from Zenit


First of all, here is the text of the Pope's Sunday address before praying the Angelus with those gathered in St. Peter's square.

Last Wednesday, with the rite of ashes, we began Lent, liturgical time which every year reminds us of a fundamental truth: we do not enter eternal life without carrying our cross in union with Christ. We do not attain to happiness and peace without facing the interior struggle with courage. It is a struggle that is overcome with the weapons of penance: prayer, fasting, and works of mercy. All this must be lived in a hidden way, without hypocrisy, in a spirit of sincere love for God and for our brethren.

Also, here is an interview discussing the Pope's bodyguards. For some reason, this made me think of John Bambenek.... maybe it brought back memories of the "Sacristan Drop Squad" and "Koinonia Special Ops."
