Happy Birthday to "The Rock of Peter" © GodAloneSufficeth.com, 2012

 “Happy Birthday Holy Father!” That’s right, today, His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI is celebrating his 85th. birthday. On this day, 85 years ago, in Marktl, Bavaria, Germany, Mr. Joseph Ratzinger Sr. and Mrs. Maria Ratzinger welcomed their little boy, Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger into this world. How wonderful! How beautiful! On this joyous day, let us thank Mr. and Mrs. Ratzinger for choosing life. Also on this day, let us together wish our Supreme Pontiff a happy birthday and pray to God for his continued health and well-being. Lastly, let us thank God for His gift of Pope Benedict XVI.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday Holy Father!

Happy Birthday to you!


Prayer for the Pope

V. Let us pray for our Sovereign Pontiff Benedict XVI

R. The Lord preserve him and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not to the will of his enemies. 


Fr. Don Brick O.C.D. is also celebrating his birthday today. If you’re planning a visit to Holy Hill this week, please drop in to the monastery and wish him a “happy birthday.”
