Benedict XVI introduced himself to the world, as the new head of the
Catholic Church. “Dear Brothers and Sisters: After the great Pope John Paul II, the Lord Cardinals have elected me, a simple and humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord.
I am consoled by the fact that the Lord knows how to act, even with inadequate instruments and above all I entrust myself to your prayers.
In the joy of the Risen Lord, trusting in His permanent help, as we go forward the Lord will help us, and His Mother, Mary Most Holy, is on our side Thank you”.
Shortly after finishing his speech as Pope in St. Peter's Square, Benedict XVI offered his first “Urbi et Orbi” blessing.
