Oggi, 19 dicembre 2009, il Santo Padre Benedetto XVI ha ricevuto in Udienza privata S.E. Mons. Angelo Amato, S.D.B., Prefetto della Congregazione delle Cause dei Santi. Nel corso dell’Udienza il Santo Padre ha autorizzato la Congregazione a promulgare i Decreti riguardanti:

- le virtù eroiche del Servo di Dio Giovanni Paolo II (Carlo Wojtyła), Sommo Pontefice; nato il 18 maggio 1920 a Wadowice (Polonia) e morto a Roma il 2 aprile 2005


I do not speak or read Italian, so I am guessing at this translation --

That picture? Oh, that's the picture I took of John Paul the Great when I went to a papal audience in Rome in September 2004.

Really? Lucky. Every time someone I knew was going to be in the presence of the Holy Father, I would always ask them to think of me while they were near him. I knew that was as close to him as I would ever get.

It's so nice to see you have a following...that Bender fellow seems like a real nice guy.
