Write to B16

I'm sure you are all emailing your local members of Parliament about theraputic cloning right now, but while you're at it, why not email the Holy Father?

The NLM had an idea at the suggestion of a bishop close to the Pope himself. Email B16 to tell him how much you are looking forward to a relaxation of the rules regarding the Tridentine Rite. Apparently the Holy Father keep tab of the number of letters regarding certain issues and this is a way to counter the French bishops' pleas.

Write to:
His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI
00120 Via del Pellegrino
Citta del Vaticano

Or email:
benedictxvi@vatican.va

Of course you don't have to write to him only on this issue. Tell him it's your birthday too!

I thought the Pope was like, inspired by the Holy Spirit, thus lobbying him was useless because he does the will of your god.

Of course, as a politician whose lifestyle and power are dependant on his following, he's a prisoner of public opinion too.

I thought that Catholics participate in the prophetic ministry of Christ by the virtue of our baptism, so that even though the Holy Spirit is the one who inspires the Pope when he teaches the Church, He may see fit to work through any one of us.

Not that I'm suggesting the Church is a democracy.
