Sign the Letter of Support for Pope Benedict XVI!

Appeal from plain Catholic faithful.

This letter gathers different Catholic faithful, from different tendencies, who wish to support the pope in his brave gesture. The authors of this site assure you of the complete confidentiality guaranteed to the names of the signatories, the list of which will be transmitted only to the Holy See.

On January, 21st, You decided, Holy Father, to put an end to the excommunication which pressed on the bishops of the The Society of Saint Pius X. By this brave gesture, You acted the Good Shepherd of the flock entrusted to You by God.

We are men and women invested in the life of our city, we are fathers and mothers with a family or unmarried and, after stormy times, when "the boat seemed to take the water everywhere ", we wish to build with You the Church of tomorrow with its Tradition for a foundation. This project includes inevitably the transmission of the Faith to the future generations, by the love of the Catholic Liturgy and by the defence of human life.

By this letter, we wish above all to express to You our deep gratitude. Although Your historic gesture has been met with hostility and confusing opinions from certain media and persons, it arouses in us a tremendous joy and fills us with Hope. We prayed for Your intentions, according the request You made at the beginning of Your Pontificate: " Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves.(1)"

We wish, by affixing our signature to this letter and indicating our age and the number of our children to say to You that with You, we want to build Christendom for the generations which will follow us, hoping wholeheartedly that future Christians will be self-confident and will proclaim to all the World the Credo.

So, in a spirit of filial respect, we bring You our support and our daily prayers for the pursuit of Your Pontificate, that God's Church will may emerge increased by it.
