Dear Pope Benedict,
Congratulations on your installation as our new Holy Father. We will pray for you every day, and we know that you will pray for us, too. We watched you come out on the balcony on the day you became Pope. We rang our classroom bell and waved our Pope flag for you and we cheered out loud (we could because Miss Bailey said we could because it was lunch time, not class time).
We are going to make our First Holy Communion on May 14, will you please pray for us? God bless you today and always.
