Pope-benedict-5Due to the holidays, I didn't do The Weekly Benedict last week, so here's another double-dose of our awesome pope! (In fact, it's an unusually large double-dose, because the pope is especially active this time of year–so pray for his health and rest–and because the Vatican web site guys got their hinders in gear and delivered a whole month's worth of speeches in English at once.)
