"Pray for Me That I May Not Flee for Fear of the Wolves"

Amy Welborn recalls these words spoken by Pope Benedict XVI in his homily at his inauguration as pope, five years ago today.

How prophetic these words appear now, especially after the pope's trip to Malta where he wept with the victims of clerical sex abuse.  One can only imagine the toll this crisis is taking on him.   A photograph taken in Malta yesterday during Mass shows Pope Benedict slumping over in apparent exhaustion and Msgr. Marini gently waking him.




Happy Anniversary Holy Father!  May God strengthen and console you as you lead his Church in very difficult times.
