Grazie Mille Papa


It has been amazing watching history in the making today.  Our Pope teaches all, by his actions, Christ‘s admonition, “As I do, so must you do”. Our now-retired Pope has taught us all humility.

Christ could have had the world at his feet, but he chose to die for us instead.  His Kingdom is not of this world, and our reward for following Him is not of this world either. The trappings of power hold no sway over our beloved Papa.   He chose The Church over his position.

Wouldn’t it be nice if others who hold great power learned when it was time to step aside for the greater good?

Grazie mille Papa.  Thanks very much Papa.  You will remain in all of our prayers.
