With great joy and thanksgiving, The Community of Jesus, the Living Mrecy celebrated the election of our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XIV. When the bells rang out the jubilant announcement, our hearts soared with gratitude to the Holy Spirit. In Pope Benedict, we have a gentle and loving Papa who will strengthen our faith and commitment to Christ as the Way, the Truth and the Life. Whatever the world may say, we must remember what Jesus said, "They look, but do not see, and hear, but do not listen or understand." In Pope Benedict XVI, God has assured us of His constant protection, His everlasting love, His ardent longing for the human heart to know Him and to love Him.
Viva il Papa! Long Live Pope Benedict XVI!!!!
And now, at this moment, weak servant of God that I am, I must assume this enormous task, which truly exceeds all human capacity. How can I do this? How will I be able to do it? ... I am not alone. I do not have to carry alone what in truth I could never carry alone. All the Saints of God are there to protect me, to sustain me and to carry me. And your prayers, my dear friends, your indulgence, your love, your faith and your hope accompany me. Indeed, the communion of Saints consists not only of the great men and women who went before us and whose names we know. All of us belong to the communion of Saints, we who have been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, we who draw life from the gift of Christ's Body and Blood, through which he transforms us and makes us like himself.
