Just had to comment on how sweet and wonderful it is that the Pope is now tweeting! He used his ipad to set up a new Vatican news portal, news.va. (You can even watch the youtube video of his cardinals teaching him how to use the ipad.) The more accessible the Church is the better I always say! I may even have to join Twitter and actually follow him!
Pope Benedict XVI also celebrates his 60th anniversary in the priesthood today. Its amazing a future Pope was ordained on the Feast day of Sts. Peter and Paul. It must be astonishing for him to look back and see how the Church and the world has changed in those 60 years. Pray for continued good health and protection for our great Pope today!
