Mille Grazie!

Today, an historic day in the modern Church, our Pope says "Basta!"  Rather than attempt to lead you in prayer and reflection, I defer to the words of Pope Benedict XVI.  However, I do encourage prayers for the Pope, for the Cardinals and for the People of God, you, me and all our brothers and sisters throughout the world.

On Sunday, Pope Benedict closed his greetings to the people in St. Peter's Square with these simple but powerful words.  Let them be a daily reminder of what prayer can be for each of us.

"In prayer, we are always close to each other."
