Papa Bene!

Posted by Ryan on April 15, 2008

Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the United States began today at Andrew’s Air Force Base in Maryland.  He met President Bush, Laura and Jenna along with a throng of cheering crowds and fanfare.  He also clearly denounced the pedophilia scandals that have rocked the Roman Catholic Church over the last decade or so. 

Great start to his visit to America by setting the tone and addressing issues that many American Catholics and non-Catholics have.  There’s more to come, I’m sure!  I like this Pope– among many other positive things, he’s not asking Catholics to call God “Allah“, nor is he asking any government to adopt sharia law.  Nice!

    His beliefs are closely aligned with “The Great Pope,” John Paul II (who many believe, including me, saved the Catholic Church and brought it back to its roots) and I think Benedict XVI has the potential to be as great. I’ll be following his trip closely.

    He may be a bit too conservative for my liking but he’s saying all the right things about important issues.

    Enjoy having him in your own neck of the woods
