Pope Benedict: Spiritual Bouquet for Epiphany

On December 21, I posted details of changed plans for the sending of future Spiritual Bouquets to our Holy Father. Accordingly I'm assembling a composite of all our offerings so far and would appreciate your contributions for the period since the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. They will be included as long as I receive them by 1am (GMT) Saturday January 3rd.

The letter will be handed to our postman later that morning. I assure you that when he sees THAT particular addressee on one of my outgoing envelopes, he treats it with great care and respect and smiles as if accepting an honourable mission.

May God grant to us all, the blessings of His peace, joy and hope, this New Year's day and always,

In Christo pro Papa Benedict,

Oh for a Catholic postman!

I can assure you that if some of our postal workers see ecclesiastical addressees the letters are certainly delayed!
