We love you Papa Ben!!!

On the day of our Holy Father’s last General Audience, I am remembering so fondly this:

Yep, that’s me and Ryan honeymooning in Rome…did I mention just minutes before this picture we got our marriage blessed by this guy?

Yep, that’s Papa, look how close we were to him!!!

What an incredibly humble man we’ve had to shepherd us these past 8 years. Let us pray for a peaceful retirement for an extraordinary fellow, and for the guidance of the Holy Spirit over the cardinals over the next few weeks. I’ll close with this beautiful quote from today’s final general audience:

‎”I always knew that the Lord is in the barque, that the barque of the Church is not mine, not ours, but His – and He shall not let her sink. It is He, who steers her. . . .”
