    In his website “What does the Prayer Really Say,” Father John T. Zuhlsdorf mentioned that this e-mail address was available to express support for our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, after His Holiness decided to withdraw from his appearance at La Sapienza.

    I wanted to take this opportunity to not only to express my support but also to pledge to be united with him in prayer on Sunday at the Angelus. May we all grow in the attainment of true wisdom through the teachings of our Holy Mother the Church and through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Seat of Wisdom.

    Sincerely yours,

  2. Henry Edwards says:

    Please convey to our Holy Father my deep gratitude and support for Summorum Pontificum and in the present crisis of faith and reason, for all he’s doing to — as Fr. John T. Zulhsdorf says — Save the Liturgy and Save the World.

  3. Paul says:

    Inspired by the example of Fr Zulsdorf of “What Does the Prayer Really Say”, I should like to express my solidarity with His Holiness Pope Benedict in the face of the opposition against him from a minority of students at La Sapienza. God Bless our Pope.

    Dear Holy Father:

    We support Your Holiness 110%! Viva IL Papa!

    P.S. Father John T. Zuhlsdorf has made Your Holiness’ e-mail known to us through his blog: What Does The Prayer Really Say? !

  5. Schrenk says:

    Please let His Holiness know that he has all my support and all my loyalty. The shocking protest from certain faculty and students at La Sapienza reveals nothing more than virulent ignorance: how rude of them to insult the best intentions of the Holy Father.

    I have the honor to remain His Holiness’s obedient servant,

    Caro Santo Padre,

    Some in academia wish that the Holy See would just go away. And yet we note with satisfaction and faith “e pur si muove”.

    God Bless the Holy Father!
    Viva il Papa!

    Holy Father,

    I found your email address on Fr. John Zuhlsdorf’s blog and so I am taking this opportunity to write. Thanks for giving your life to The Church. I think you have shown great courage with regard to the University of Rome. Pope Boniface VIII must be turning over in his grave to see what his institution has come to, but not to worry John Paul II, who often taught be not afraid, is looking down on you.

    This is the text of the email I just sent:

    “Laudetur Iesus Christus!

    I wish to express my firm support for His Holiness the Pope, and to assure him of my continued prayers for him and his intentions always.

    At 3am Pacific Standard Time, my family and I will unite ourselves in spirit and in prayer with the faithful in Rome and throughout the world, in support of His Holiness the Pope at the Sunday Angelus.

    Viva il Papa!”

  10. David M.O'Rourke says:

    Through the good offices of Fr. John Zulsdorf I have received this email address and with it, the opportunity to join in spirit with the Holy Father at this Sunday’s Angelus. Once again Pope Benedict has shown a leadership that is at once strong and serene and reminiscent in it’s dignity of Our Blessed Saviour.

    I am an Anglican. Many of us look to this Pope to lead Christianity out of the morass into which so much of it has fallen and indeed to help us toward the day when we all eat the same bread and drink the same cup, the very Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ Our Lord.

    Dear Holy Father:

    The possibility of expressing support for your actions in connection with the lecture at La Sapienza University in Rome was mentioned on the blog maintained by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf, What Does the Prayer Really Say.

    As a former university instructor in the United States, I was saddened but not surprised by the fact that a tiny minority of faculty and students tried to prevent your ideas from being heard at La Sapienza. Unfortunately, as you yourself learned during the turbulent 60s and 70s, ignorance and stupidity can be found even in the halls of knowledge and wisdom. However, people of faith and good will trust that Truth will be victorious in the end, especially because we believe that the Truth you stand for and speak of is the Ultimate Truth of God Himself.

    May the Good Lord continue to bless and guide you and may His Mother keep her watchful eyes upon you always.

  12. mizzE says:

    Dear Holy Father:

    I read online the complete English translation of the speech you had prepared to deliver at La Sapienza. Your words affirmed my deep conviction that you are the most sane, rational and loving person humanity and the Church has to be its voice for liberty to pursue truth. May God keep you safe and strong for the challenges of the day.

    P.S. One of your agents, Fr. Z who operates the “What Does the Prayer Really Say” blog kindly provided this opportunity for me and many others to communicate directly with you. For that I am grateful.

  13. Fr Martin Fox says:

    “Together with Peter”

    Most dear holy father:

    “Tu es Petrus”!

    The people of Piqua, in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, in Ohio, U.S.A., love our pope because we know Jesus guards our Church and we know our pope loves our Lord.

    We know our pope gives la Sapienza to the world, for which we are grateful.

  14. Holy Father:

    We were appalled by the behavior of the group of faculty and students at the Sapienza Università di Roma that forced you to cancel your presentation. We have read your talk and agree wholeheartedly with everything that you have written.

    We both came to Rome ten years ago in October 1998 for the celebration of the tenth anniversary of Ecclesia Dei Adflicta when you and your remarkable friend and colleague, the late Cardinal Alfons Maria Stickler so warmly hosted us.

    We stand in solidarity with you now and will offer the Angelus today and in the days to come for you and for Holy Mother the Church.

    May Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom continue to guide you,.

  15. Rose says:

    Dear Papa, thank you for your wonderful teaching in your books, your encyclicals and your speeches. Your words confirm and strengthen my faith. Your wisdom and understanding, your serenity and confidence make me feel safe and secure in the Church. I love you from the bottom of my heart, Holy Father. And I pray that you will be given many more years to guide
    the Church on earth.

    PS Fr. Zuhisdorf gave us your email address.

    The wonderful website http://www.wdtprs.com/blog maintained by Father John T. Zuhlsdorf pointed out that this email address could be utilized to voice support for the Holy Father in these troubling times. Of all the innumerable reasons I have to support Pope Benedict XVI (especially the crucial role his teachings played in my conversion to Catholicism almost 3 years ago), the mere fact of history demands that the faithful pray and publicly show support for the Papacy, especially over against anti-clericalism in Italy and Rome. In this spirit, I pray for the Holy Father’s intentions, safety, and continued victories against the ignorance of man and the wiles of the evil one. May the Holy Spirit grant the Holy Father all the blessings necessary to conquer in this ever going struggle in Rome, and may God the Father give you the spirit of endurance He has granted His Vicars at various times, for instance in the days of Pius IX, when secularists press their agenda on the Eternal City, be it physical, spiritual, or intellectual threats. God has abundantly blessed every Catholic alive today with the honor of being in the service of such a Holy Man as our current Pontiff. May he know that many of us across the world stand staunchly behind him against his foes.

    Blessings,

    Bo Bonner

  17. I have been so moved to see the wonderful turnout in St Peter’s Square this morning with a full Piazza meeting our Holy Father. What a resounding response of love! I was there in spirit with you all, pouring our filial love on the beloved successor of Peter, Benedict XVI.

    Each and every time I read Psalm 80:18 I think of our Holy Father and I offer these words of prayer for him: “Fiat manus tua super virum déxteræ tuæ et super fílium hóminis quem confirmásti tibi.” (Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand: and upon the son of man whom thou hast confirmed for thyself.)

    Compelled and inspired to write by Father Z from WDTPRS, we just wanted to voice our solidarity with our Holy Father. It is really disheartening that the dissenting voices, have no qualms about suppressing freedom, when the very thing they are at university for is to be open to learning about divergent opinions. So much for hoping that the young people will be open minded.

    Thank you for being true to the Church, honoring and maintaining her. We continue to pray for you.

    Please continue to pray for the church, and be assured that there are many university educated individuals who believe in what you, our Holy Father, preach and teach.

    Que viva el Papa,
