Two Popes, One Encyclical, All Eyes on Jesus — with His Eyes, in His Heart

The conversation I imagine may have happened (roughly translated):

“Brother, you should really co-sign Lumen Fidei. It’s yours, you wrote it. I’m an editor. My hand was light on this letter.”

“The Holy Spirit …. It is God’s alone. And you are their Holy Father now. The faithful need you to help bring them into the Trinity. They need a father to bring them to the Father. ”

“Well, then come to the dedication of a monument to St. Michael. We need his intercession. You know.”

And thus:

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen

    It sure has been a beautiful day! I looked at those pictures of our two Papas together and smiled. Two will be made Saints, two, still living, will one day,become Saints and all under the protection of St. Joseph and St. Michael.

    God is good!

    I just wish it had not been marred by a copyright dispute.

    The use of copyright on church works to do anything other than make sure the work is faithfully reproduced, is a cancer upon the New Evangelization.
