I like that the Pope is talking to all of us, not just the Catholics. Here is the Vatican site with the complete text of his message to us.
Check out this story from John Allen which looks at the pope's previous comments about America in different books and talks. Very interesting.
I am beginning to get emails with links to places keeping up with the Holy Father on his visit ... I'll list them below and update as info comes in:
- Pope 2008, being run by Tim Drake.
- Papal Visit 2008 News and Views, from Our Sunday Visitor, being run by John Norton, Russell Shaw, and Mary Deturris Poust
- Pope Benedict in the US, being run by BeliefNet.
- Benedictions, David Gibson's blog covering the Papal visit.
- Pope Benedict - USA - 2008, Marcel LeJeune's clearinghouse of links to info about the Papal visit. This is one big list!
- Papal Visit Coverage, a list from The Curt Jester
