Each day my admiration and affection for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI grows, and even more so following a few words he spoke at the conclusion of his Angelus address this past Sunday.
The city of Rome is currently experience a winter the likes of which it hasn't seen in some twenty-six years. Rome actually has snow:
In his parting greeting in Italian, Pope Benedict said, "Snow is beautiful but we hope that spring will come soon!"
Now only is a holy Pope, he's a very wise Pope, too!
