“Oremus Pro Pontifice” stuff

REQUEST: If you have ordered or received some of these buttons or mugs, etc., or any other Z-stuff – could you send photos?  Also, send a note if any of these has started or helped a conversation.!


In light of the attacks on Pope Benedict which are sure to continue in the media, I thought it would be a good idea to pray more frequently for the Holy Father and to help you remind others to do the same.

Here are some trinkets which you might consider in this cause.

With the help of "Vincenzo", the official WDTPRS photoshopper, I made a cafepress store for buttons and the like.

If you are in the USA

Get Pro Pontifice stuff here.

If you are in the UK…

If you are an Aussie …

There are also mugs and a hat and some shirts and the like.

There are as well packs of 100 buttons in different sizes which you could distribute to people.

From the the Enchiridion of Indulgences, #25:

A partial indulgence is granted to the Christian faithful who, in a spirit of filial devotion, devoutly recite any duly approved prayer for the Supreme Pontiff (e.g., the Oremus pro Pontifice):

V. Let us pray for our Pontiff, Pope Benedict.

R. May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and bless him upon earth, and deliver him not to the will of his enemies.

Our Father.  Hail Mary.

Let us pray.

O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people, look mercifully upon Thy servant Benedict, whom Thou hast chosen as shepherd to preside over Thy Church. Grant him, we beseech Thee, that by his word and example, he may edify those over whom he hath charge, so that together with the flock committed to him, may he attain everlasting life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Pretty cool!

    However (and feel free to call me pessimist) I fear that in the (near) future wearing a Chirstian (and especially a Catholic) symbol will be like wearing a david star in 1939 Germany…

    Yet perhaps we should consider ourselves lucky. ‘Blessed are those who are persecuted because of me’ says Jesus in the Gospel.

    After all the more a faith is tested the deeper it gets.

    For a moment there I thought you’d managed to get an indulgence for using one of your coffee mugs. That would have been very impressive.

  3. RichardT: LOL! No, I don’t think we can do that.

    But you will have my gratitude and a really nice mug!

    Any chance you can get that travel mug done in a 20oz version, for those of us that hit Starbucks on really long road trips, where we need the caffeine? (Especially if it’s potentially the last Starbucks on the way to Iced Tea land south of the tropic of Mason and Dixon)

    Didn’t you have one for a while with “Oremus pro Pontifice” on one side, “say the black; do the red” on the other?
