My sister and me in Paris and Lourdes during the Apostolic Journey of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI together with the pilgrims and the community of believers. Because of the complicated time schedule of our trip it was just a blitz visit in Lourdes. We were not able to take with us the healing water. We missed attending the 150th Eucharistic Mass, the homily of our Holy Father in his perfect French. I, myself in my humble opinion as a follower of him since his Papacy in some places and times, that in Paris and Lourdes, those big and long banners and posters for our Pope are missing except for a few that could only be counted by fingers. For me it is a sign of loyalty, affection and hospitality to he Pope as a Spiritual Leader and Head of the Roman Catholic Church. Beholding at him is like beholding God that is good and we can follow.

It's not that I'm stressing the French. Are they saving money? In this way, the printers, paper, tarpaulin and textiles industry, the designers and artist and the rest are not making money.

If the commerce can display everwhere close-up screened photos of Jude Law from Dior Homme Sport and also blow-ups from models for cosmetics and so on why can't they also do it to our Holy Father? Hey, we have a handsome Pope!!!

It's not a question of fame. It's not a question of recognition. There's no doubt that His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI is recognized around the globe. It's a question of faith. The really genuine believers of Christ not only in words but also in thought and in deed!!

And this we can also achieved by imitating or following and respecting the person who represents the living Christ on earth to a superlative degree. That's why it's also necessary for us to stop, look and listen. For this, we also need to have some reminders that works.

He is just a man. Beholding him as God is idol worshipping!

Money for his "rock concert" could have helped the poor!

"It is written in your own Law that God said,'You are gods.' We know that what the Scripture say is true forever; and God call those people gods, the people to whom His message was given" (Jn 10:34-35).
