Happy birthday to Pope Benedict

Out of sight certainly doesn’t mean out of mind in this case. I would be surprised if he himself marks his birthday in any but a small way, but today is indeed the 86th birthday of Pope emeritus Benedict XVI.

‘They’ say his health has deteriorated in recent weeks, but then again: ‘they’ say a lot. We simply don’t know, but we can certainly pray. For his wellbeing, his rest, and his prayers for us. Let’s do that especially today, in hope, faith and love.
