Happy Anniversary Holy Father

I took this photo of Pope Benedict XVI waving from his Pope Mobile along Fifth Avenue in New York. This was taken today, April 19, 2008, on the third anniversary of his pontificate.

What an awesome experience!

Happy Anniversary Holy Father. May you be blessed with continued good health and long life.

We love you!

Prayer for Pope Benedict's Apostolic Visit to the U.S.


Almighty Father, who pours forth the blessings in abundance upon us, we humbly pray that you will inspire, guide and protect Pope Benedict XVI on his pastoral visit to the United States.

Lord God, bless our Holy Father who comes as a messenger of peace and charity to all people of faith and good will. May his presence in the United States serve to build up the bonds that unite us who are each made in your image and likeness, may his teaching and witness strengthen the faith of the People of God.

Father, we lovingly entrust Pope Benedict's visit to the care of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Queen of the Americas. Through her prayers may he be preserved from all harm, and may he shine forth with the truth of the Gospel that he proclaims, and may his presence among us foster a renewal of the Church in our country.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.

The Pope's Intentions for April 2008


The Holy Father's general intention is: "That Christians, even in the difficult and complex situations of present-day society, may not tire of proclaiming with their lives that Christ's resurrection is the source of peace and of hope."

His missionary intention is: "That the future priests of the young Churches may be constantly more formed culturally and spiritually to evangelise their nations and the whole world."
