    Happy name day to our Papa Benedetto…. baptismal name, that is!
    What you said, William!
    Also happy National Patron Day to all Canadian readers-St. Joseph is the Patron Saint of Canada.

    Benedicto Sexto Decimo,
    Summo Pontífici
    et universáli Papæ,
    pax, vita et salus perpétua!

    Témpora bona véniant,
    pax Christi véniat,
    regnum Christi véniat.

  6. Ecce Fidelis servus et prudens,
    Behold, the faithful and wise Servant
    Quem constituit Dominus super familiam suam.
    Whom the Lord places over his family.
    Justus germinabit sicut lilium
    Just, he will grow like the lily
    Et florebit in aeternum ante Dominum.
    And flourish eternally before the Lord.
