Benedikt Gott Geschickt.

“Benedict sent from God” the German audience chants…

From Yahoo! News – Benedict Says He Prayed Not to Be Elected:

Benedict played to the crowd, telling them: “My roots are in Bavaria and I’m still Bavarian as bishop of Rome.”

At the start of the audience, Benedict apologized to the crowds for arriving late, explaining that a meeting with religious leaders who attended his inauguration Mass ran long.

“The Germans are used to punctuality,” he joked. “I’m already very Italian.”
