The Chair of St Peter

Today (in the Traditional calendar) is the feast of The Chair of St Peter. I think this is a good reason to remember and pray for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI today.

Pope Benedict has recently been in the middle of a media storm where he was being attacked from all sides, although he is probably quite used to being in this position by now. We as Catholics have a duty to stand by him and support him as best we can. If he is strong enough to stand up to secularism and atheism, then we have to be as well. Last Friday he again re-stated very strongly the Church's position against homosexual acts and partnerships, against Abortion, against contraception, against Euthanasia and for putting the protection of families at the forefront of the Catholic Church's teaching. Pope Benedict is teaching true traditional Catholic teaching with strength and vigour and he asks us to do the same in our own lives through our example to others.
