the new papa

Wednesday, April 20th, 2005

新聖父是德國人若瑟‧拉青格(Joseph Ratzinger),聞說是保守派。他取號Benedict XVI,「官方」譯名該稱本篤十六世。

想到本篤會。本篤會,老牌修會也,惜未熟會規背景,只知會祖為聖本篤(St. Benedict)。香港也有聖本篤堂,於沙田圍,於九十年代中落成,建築風景甚為現代化。


May our ‘papa’ rest in peace

His work for us should be remembered, even though I cannot agree all of them.
