The Holy Father's First Comments

| | Comments (1)

The New York Times has proven good for something.

Dear brothers and sisters, after our great pope, John Paul II, the cardinals have elected me, a simple, humble worker in God's vineyard.

I am consoled by the fact that the Lord knows how to work and how to act, even with insufficient tools, and I especially trust in your prayers.

In the joy of the resurrected Lord, trustful of his permanent help, we go ahead, sure that God will help, and Mary, his most beloved mother, stands on our side.

Thank you.

He then imparted the blessing.

Yay!!! :) Yay for our new Papa!!! :) We love you, Pope Benedict XVI!!! :)

Hmmm... doesn't roll off the tongue quite like JP2... and there's no chance of calling him B16-- I'm pretty sure that's an American bomber of some sort... :/

But isn't he so sweet? I got home just in time to see the blessing-- he looked nervous, but so cute, with his adorable little smile... :)

Yay for new pope. :)
