Pope Benedict XVI's 1st Public Greeting
Pope Benedict XVI
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
After the great Pope, John Paul II, the Lord Cardinals have elected me, a simple, humble worker in the Lord's vineyard. I am consoled by the fact that the Lord is able to work and act with insufficient instruments and, above all, I rely on your prayers.
In the joy of the risen Lord, confident of his permanent help, let us go forward. The Lord will help us. Mary, his Most Holy Mother, is on our side. Thank you.
After this, he imparted his first blessing to the city of Rome and to the world (urbi et orbi).
