Happy Anniversary, Pope Benedict!

Monday is Pope Benedict XVI's fifth anniversary as Pontiff, and the Archdiocese of Vancouver will mark the occasion at this weekend's Masses. Archbishop Miller is asking parishes to print in their bulletins the following prayer from the Sacramentary to commemorate this important occasion in the life of the Church: “God our Father, shepherd and guide, look with love on Benedict, our servant, the pastor of your Church. May his word and example inspire and guide the Church, and may he, and all those entrusted to his care, come to the joy of everlasting life. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.” Parishes are also encouraged to say the prayer at a suitable time in the liturgy. Archbishop Miller will say Mass on Monday at 12:10 p.m. at Holy Rosary Cathedral to commemorate the anniversary.
