O Dear Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, It is with great affection that I send these congratulations to you on your election to the sovereign pontificate, that sacred seat occupied by St. Peter, so many saintly popes, and our late beloved great Shepherd John Paul II. It is with great joy that I receive the news that our dear "Cardinal Ratzinger", who has won over so many hearts by your steadfast commitment to Christians everywhere, the beauty of your defense of truth, and the profound light you have passed along from Heaven having oveseen the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith for many years, will now shepherd the global flock of Christ. Go forth Mighty Shepherd in the spirit of Him Who called you to this service. I shall gladly follow!
Totus + Tuus,
