Happy Birthday

Excerpt of the birthday message sent to the Pope by his brother, Canon Georg Ratzinger, published this Sunday in the semi-official Italian Catholic daily, Avvenire:
"May the Lord give you spiritual and intellectual inspiration, and also physical strength, to thus be able to take the right decisions and to find the proper words, and to remain brave and steady on the waves which, according to a secret Divine will, surround the Church, and you with her."

"Oremus pro invicem."
The waves are mighty, indeed...

Yes, happy birthday to our beautiful Pope!

My Apologia pro Montini is up in the comments section below as promised, in the post "April 16, Exsultet Note." I won't abuse the hospitality of these bloggers any more by taking up more space here, but I'm happy to discuss further and have provided suggestions in case anyone wants to do that...
