Gasparian Echoes

There is something amazingly Gasparian about this. It is Gaspar who said that the Lord chooses the weakest instruments to accomplish his greatest work. It gives me great hope to hear this echoed in our new Pope.

Dear brothers and sisters, after the great Pope John Paul II, the cardinals have elected me a simple, humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord.

The fact that the Lord can work and act even with insufficient means consoles me, and above all I entrust myself to your prayers.

In the joy of the risen Lord, trusting in his permanent help, we go forward. The Lord will help us and Mary his very holy mother stands by us."

Pope Benedict XVI
