Dear Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI:
My prayers have been answered! I am so happy that you have become our new Pope. Our family as well as our Parish, St. Philip the Apostle, of Camp Springs, Maryland, USA, will continue to pray for you in our daily prayers.
I am quite sure that I will never be able to travel to Rome; however, if you come to America anywhere close to Washington, D.C., I will come to see you. America has many problems at this time but I know God is watching over us.
May God bless you and keep you!
