A Chartres Surplice - the Popes
I was ordained under the pontificate of St John Paul II, and Pope Benedict XVI is still wonderfully alive in the Vatican. I included them both on the surplice as I have such a high regard for them.
St John Paul stood up against the world and won.
Pope Benedict through his razor sharp theology pieced to the heart of the issue.
I wish I had the courage of John Paul, and in the intellect and kindness of Benedict. So I wear their shields as I walk along. St John Paul, I pray, looks down from heaven to to help me to be strong in my faith, and I carry the wonderful Pope Benedict as he is too old to walk to Chartres now.
