Thank you so much for all the help, all the protection.It's not possible to say thanks properly. It has been so much help and protection that I am not able to express all my gratitude.
Thanks be to God.

How can a person go back to normal life if all I want is to be close to them?! The more I see the Pope, the more I read his writings the more I like him. I always did since the time he was the amazing Cardinal Ratzinger. And how much more I like him know... - and all the boys around him, so well choosen, Cardinal Bertone, Msgr. Guido...And obviousely that "bel uomo".
A very good oportunity to see Msgr. Georg and some other dears from the Holy See.

The Pope in Parliament and Westminster Abbey: a day that shook the foundations of Britain's Protestant myth
A good post from Damian Thompson.

I noticed that, with the Pope's visit to the UK, a lot of people reading my blog were searching the internet about the Pope's Secretary. So, for the fans, here they go some pictures - some with the help of the photographer Spaziani and some others I found on forums around the internet.
Our dear Pope is in very good hands.
One of the times I was in Castel Gandolfo last July, I saw him alive - yes ! - and I was amazed with his gentle smile and eyes, the way he walked...
I think Our Lord likes him very much too.
More posts on Msgr. Georg Gänswein here (there you need to scroll down).

Please go there. If you are a fan of Msgr. Georg, you won't regret it.

Mgr Marini said: “For all the Masses said in the UK the Preface and the Canon will be said in Latin. What the Holy Father intends by using Latin is to emphasise the universality of the faith and the continuity of the Church.”

Once more, I found this at Overheard in the Sacristy .
What to do on 9/11: Instead of burning the Koran, tell the world about Muslim persecution of Christians
In many Islamic countries, Christian minorities – including the descendants of the earliest Christian communities in the Middle East – suffer under laws that make them second-class citizens. Not only do they have fewer legal rights, but the exercise of their faith is cruelly regulated by governments in the name of Sharia. In America, we criticise the plan to build a mosque near the 9/11 murder site even while agreeing that American law provides the clear right of Muslims to do such a thing. But in many Muslim nations no Christian can build or even repair a church without approval (usually not forthcoming) from a hostile government ministry.
Much worse, murder, kidnappings, forced conversions and attacks against Christians by radical Muslims are common in the Islamic world, especially in the Middle East and in Pakistan. Every year, hundreds of Christians are murdered by religious fanatics. Even when a Muslim government disapproves of such violence, officials and police often stand aside and allow the attacks rather than confront a politically powerful radical Islam.

Please, go there to see by yourselves.
My comment there:"This picture means so much. Monsignor Georg in the shadow. Always by the Pope’s side. Even when we can not see him, his hand is there."
It should receive a prize.

I resisted posting this pictures and others I will post one of this days about our visit to the Pope in July. I wanted to show it to the world but, at same time, it was so much intense that looked like I couldn't turn it public.
But there it is: our Pope and Monsignor Georg.
PS: it was on 25 of July, at the Angelus.
