Pope Benedict XVI
Let’s welcome the new pope! Joseph Alois Ratzinger, now known as Pope Benedict XVI, began his papacy on April 19, 2005. He was born on April 16, 1927 at Marktl am Inn, Bavaria, Germany. Well, I’m not gonna place his biography here or anything more about him because you can all read his entry in Wikipedia here.
Well, I just wanna welcome him! I wish he would be a good Pope. May he right most of the wrong things happening now. But wait, isn’t he too old? I just wish that he would live long. 😉 There are so many issues that we should all resolve.
He’s the 265th pope already! Man, I couldn’t believe that there are so many now. Well, they’ve did a great job anyway. I think we really need someone to guide us, whatever our religion is. Anyway, I’ve read that his views is much like the late Pope John Paul II. I think that’s a good thing. But maybe, it would also be good if he could be less strict. We have a new world now. We’re not in the 16th century, heck. We all know that he has some controversial views but I guess he just needs to learn that we’re already in the 21st Century and that we need to grow with the years. The Church must adapt to the environment.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Let’s all pray for the future! Hail Pope Benedict XVI. We wish you good luck!
