Benedict XVIHis Most Emminent and Most Reverend Lord Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church Joseph Ratzinger is now Pope Benedict XVI. The Church could not have picked a better Pope!
He called himself a "humble servant on the Lord's vineyard called to this ministry." He will, no doubt, be one of our great Popes because he will lead the Church through a period of cultural, social, and what may be political persecution. He is the man to do this. He stands in the place of Peter as the guardian of the faith.
At the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, he's been putting the Smackdown on heresy since 1981. Now he can put the smackdown on the things he has called "the biggest enemies of the Church: Liberalism, Marxism, and materialism," from the Chair of Peter. In the coming days, we'll have more on Benedict XVI here at the World.
