Eternal rest grant them, O Lord. Also be mindful of the survivors.
There’s plenty of coverage elsewhere of the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. Aside from my belief that he is making the right decision, as he is evidently quite ill, I don’t really have anything to add. I post the above Taizé prayer to the Holy Spirit (the same chant that was sung at my baptism in 1990) as a prayer for the Pope’s health, for a peaceful retirement for him, and for the selection of a new Pope next month.
If you need some calming, meditative music to help you decide how to answer the poll, here you go! ;)
Today is not only New Year’s Day, but in the Catholic liturgical calendar it is a Holy Day of Obligation dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God. In honor thereof, I’ve posted the above Maronite chant in honor of Mary.
