He went to see Pope Benedict, greeted him as a brother, and they knelt together in a pew in the chapel to pray together.

He has done the St. Ignatius Spiritual Exercises. Usually done in 30 days, but there are many programs for laypeople who do not have so much time to give up. The program I am involved with is 10-weeks and it is truly life-changing!

I did a pretty quick edit of the photo of the feet washing, to remove all the photographers. It is obviously not as legitimate, but at least it doesn't have that guy staring directly at the camera. Hehe!


If you find a better background from a google search, let me know, and I can easily change it. (It's best to use Search Tools>Any Size>Large after you pull up the results of your initial search words) This isn't the best background, but it was easy.

I even have a larger size file if you wish to print one at home.

Pope Francis:

“As Pope Benedict XVI reminded us so many times in his teachings and, finally, with that courageous and humble gesture, it is Christ who guides the Church through His Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the soul of the Church, with His life-giving and unifying strength. Of many He makes a single body – the mystical Body of Christ. Let us never give in to pessimism, to that bitterness that the devil tempts us with every day. Let us not give into pessimism and let us not be discouraged. We have the certainty that the Holy Spirit gives His Church, with His powerful breath, the courage to persevere, the courage to persevere and to search for new ways to evangelise, to bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Christian truth is attractive and convincing because it responds to the deep need of human existence, announcing in a convincing way that Christ is the one Saviour of the whole of man and of all men. This announcement is as valid today as it was at the beginning of Christianity when the Church worked for the great missionary expansion of the Gospel.”
