Il Bambino Jesu

His Holiness addressed the child in everyone of us as he spoke to the children and youth gathered in Saint Peter's Square for the Sunday Angelus. At the end of the prayer he added:

“I bless from my heart all the ‘Baby Jesus’ statues. Dear children, before the crib, pray to Jesus for the intentions of the pope as well! I thank you and wish you a happy Christmas!”

(During the month of December, Benedict XVI prays "that Christ, meek and humble of heart, may inspire those responsible for nations to use power wisely and responsibly.")

That is such a charming request of his Holiness. Hope he doesn't mind this old girl joining all those children in prayer.
