on your 91st Birthdayhappy birthday papa benedict - 16 april 2018 - 91st birthday

He plans to spend his birthday in private, in the Vatican Gardens, with his brother Georg, who is 94.

Just like last year, he will most likely celebrate the day in a Bavarian style, which will remind him of the tastes of his land.

Throughout this year, Benedict has found all the rumours about his delicate health quite humorous.   He even wrote a letter to an Italian newspaper to thank them for paying so much attention to him.

Past recent birthdays have seen Benedict celebrate the day with a pint of beer.

His personal secretary, long-time aide and prelate of the Vatican Household, ArchBishop Georg Gaenswein, said “Certainly, his physical strength is lessening. It’s hard for him to walk.   However, he uses a walker, which ensures autonomy in movement and safety,” the aide said.

The rhythm of Benedict’s retirement in a monastery on Vatican City grounds consists of “prayer, meditation, reading, study, correspondence,” Gaenswein said. “He has visitors, too.   Music certainly still has its place, together with a daily walk.”happy 91st birthday papa benedict - 16 april 2018




Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "For the Saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
