Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum;
habemus Papam:

Eminentissimum ac Reverendissimum Dominum,
Dominum Josephum
Sanctae Romanae Ecclesiae Cardinalem Ratzinger

Election Benedict XVI

 

  • Urbi et Orbi Blessing

    Dear brothers and sisters,

    after our great Pope, John Paul II, the Cardinals have elected me, a simple, humble worker in God's vineyard.

    I am consoled by the fact that the Lord knows how to work and how to act, even with insufficient tools, and I especially trust in your prayers.

    In the joy of the resurrected Lord, trustful of his permanent help, we go ahead, sure that God will help. And Mary, his most beloved Mother, stands on our side. Thank you.
