Welcome to the U.S.!


A most sincere welcome to the Holy Father, and a happy birthday! The Pope turns 81 today. I've read his address to President Bush this morning and look forward to reading his homilies from the masses he is celebrating, as well as his address to the United Nations. From what I've read so far, he will be focusing on the concept of true freedom, meaning the freedom to do the good and the right, (as opposed to license, which is the freedom to do whatever you want, whenever you want, which is a false concept of freedom), creating a culture of life and protection of all life from conception to natural death, and on the aridness of moral relativism. His homilies will no doubt focus on his theme for this visit of "Christ our hope."
