One Year with Benedict XVI
edit_button

Last year on April 19, 2005, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was elected as the Roman Pontiff.

I look back to April and May 2005 and remember a very calm yet tired-looking man as our Pope. The burden of responsibility must have been intense, but after that, Benedict XVI has truly blessed the Church.



Here is a brief list of some of his work this past year:

This is an extremely shortened list of Pope Benedict XVI's great leadership. He has specifically asked us to pray for him this day, so I ask you to please say a prayer for his health and intentions. See St. Peter's Helper for more information from his speech today.

Thanks so much for this tribute. I love our Holy Father and will always remember this day and the feeling of utter joy I had when he was elected to be our Pope. Praise the Lord!

God bless you,
Jean

I was also so happy. I wanted him to be the one elected, so it was so wonderful. I remember exactly where I was when I heard the annoucement - I'll never forget.
