This post is way overdue, but unfortunately, real life got in the way. Yes, I do intend to continue with this. Yes, I'm working on Caritas in Veritate, and I do intend to reflect on it. No, I don't know when I will post next.
The Pope is quite a guy, with quite an office. Far too few people give him the respect and obedience he deserves. It's not a blind faith, it's an informed acceptance of his divine authority. "...For you are Peter, and upon this Rock I will build my Church..."
Prayer for the Pope
Let us pray for Benedict, our Pope. May the Lord protect him and grant him length of days.
May the Lord be his shield and deliver him from all harm.
May the Lord give him happiness and peace all the days of his life.
