From a Reader of The Power of the Cross

A Reader comments:

“We just finished your bible study :Power of the Cross’ – ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!!!!!. It was soooo Catholic and thank you for speaking the truth. We have a lot of Catholics out there (including myself) who missed these lessons over the last 20 years. We have made Catholicism what we wanted it to be. Not how is really is. I believe it opened the eyes of a lot of the ladies in the group.”

Welcoming Pope Benedict XVl

From Welcoming Pope Benedict XVl:

“The press has been quick to characterize Ratzinger as an inflexible and mean-spirited theologian, but I know him to be different.

I asked Brother Joseph to bless him, and he is now a strapping fourth grader who throws a ball, plays chess, and proudly strums on a guitar. Who knows how much the heartfelt prayer of this old man helped?”

From Pope products rushed to market: South Florida Sun-Sentinel:



“Our Sunday Visitor, an Indiana publisher of Catholic literature, bulletin inserts and offering envelopes, drew up a contract with a writer two years ago for a book about the papal succession. We Have a Pope! was expected to go to press this week, less than a month after Pope John Paul II died.

‘It’s being edited as it’s being written. It’s very stressful,’ said acquisitions editor Michael Dubruiel.

‘We’re looking to really say, who is this man? And how is he not the caricature of him in the mainstream press?’ Dubruiel said. He expects an initial printing of 40,000 copies of We Have a Pope!, about four times more than usual for the publisher.”

Pope Moves Into Apostolic Palace

From Reuters:

Pope Benedict was on Saturday moving into the papal apartment where John Paul died and was expected to deliver the weekly blessing from there for the first time on Sunday, Vatican sources said.

The bedroom and bathroom have both been repainted and special medical facilities installed for the ailing John Paul have been removed from one of the rooms in the suite.
