God bless you Pope Benedict, thank you for searching for the sheep. God bless the lost sheep that they will hear Christ’s voice and come home to the Church.
I am a convert to the Catholic Church. From experience I can tell you that it was not wonderful to be living in the darkness, outside the faith. It is wonderful to be living in the light of Christ and his beautiful Church.
I thank you Pope Benedict and all of our priests who have given their lives to bring Christ to us. I know there is great reward for your efforts and sacrifices. God bless you with fortitude and perseverance in fulfilling your duties.
