Concelebrating the funeral Mass of Pope Benedict Father Patrick Briscoe, editor of Our Sunday Visitor, was one of thousands of priests to concelebrate the requiem Mass for Pope Benedict XVI
Professor Arthur Urbano, quoted in the New York Times, for this recent piece on Pope Emeritus Benedict.
The hidden meanings of Pope Benedict XVI’s ruby-red shoes Pope Benedict XVI’s red shoes and other traditional wardrobe choices were in line with his vision of what it meant to lead the Catholic Church.
“I had a personal encounter with the Lord when my family and I traveled to Israel two years ago and were all baptized in the Jordan River. That experience will always be etched in my memory because I sensed the presence of God there which is a memory I will always cherish in my life.
Everything began to change at this point because I could see the path the Lord intended me to follow. Now, everything I do is done in his honor since, without him, I wouldn't be where I am today.
Luke 1:37, which states that "nothing will be impossible with God," is a biblical verse that I read daily and uses as motivation. This saying brings me joy and confidence in my life as it promises that no matter what, he will be at your side and do what is best for you.”
