He may even be more popular in Australia than the late Slim Dusty. I wonder if His Holiness knows the words to "Waltzing Matilda?"

ex war criminal ,do not trust him
As John Paul II's right hand man, in charge of enforcing the conservative papal policy, Cardinal Ratzinger earned an unfortunate nickname from his more progressive peers: the "Panzer Cardinal". Like the tank. Pope Benedict XVI, now 78, had his own brush with warfare as a young boy growing up in Nazi Germany.

* At age, 14 membership in Germany's "Hitler Youth" became mandatory. So Joseph Ratzinger enrolled
* He managed to get out early so he could study for the priesthood.
* Two years later, when he was 16, Ratzinger was drafted again by the German Army.
* Ratzinger worked as a helper in an anti-aircraft briagde.
* In 1945, he was put through basic training and stationed near his hometown in Bavaria.
* When Allied forces advanced, he deserted the German army — risking death by that act alone.
* After he escaped, Ratzinger was captured by American soldiers and spent the remainder of the war in a POW camp.

At least Benedict is a Christian, much better than the crud Al Hilalis and other Pagans invading our Western societies.

Oh! yeah, I heard it in the grapevine... As far as I know "Walzing Matilda" is the most popular song in Australia. In fact, it almost made it close to "Advance Ausralia Fair!" in the nomination of the national Anthem.

We must be open to the word of God in the Bible. We must listen to the Gospel and the Homily of the priest. "Blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it" (Lk 11:28).
