Benedict XVI placed the world in Mary’s hands during his one-day visit to the shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary in Pompeii, near Naples.
“We implore you to have pity today on the nations that have gone astray, on all Europe, on the whole world, that they might repent and return to your heart…
…the Pontiff turned to Mary, saying: “If you will not help us because we are ungrateful and unworthy children of your protection, we will not know to whom to turn.”
I’m not trying to be glib but I wonder if Pope Benedict XVI is familiar with Psalm 46? If not, I know of an Episcopal Sunday School Teacher that seems to have a handle on clearing up theological misconceptions.
