Habemus Papam! We have a Pope!

What a wonderful and joyous day for the Roman Catholic Church and the whole of Christiandeom with the election of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger as Pope today. He has taken the name Pope Benedict XVI and was greeted by tens of thousands in Saint Peter's square with cheers of "Papa Benedictus".

Pope Bededict XVI was up until recent times the Dean of the College of Cardinals and the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. A position in which he disciplined church dissidents and upheld church policy against attempts by liberals for reforms in the Roman Catholic Catholic Church.

Those who were looking for reform and liberal changes from the Seat of the Peter shall not find it in Pope Benedict XVI. He is known as a hard-line theologican and one that does not stray from the doctrines and dogmas of the Church.

"Dear brothers and sisters, after the great Pope John Paul II, the cardinals have elected me a simple, humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord" said the newly elected Pope, "The fact that the Lord can work and act even with insufficient means consoles me, and above all I entrust myself to your prayers. I entrust myself to your prayers."

Long live His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.
