May all the angels surround him...

Pope Benedict XVI speaks to us as he prepares for his "Pilgrimage of Peace."



Psalm 122. Lætatus sum.

I WAS glad when they said unto me, * We will go into the house
of the LORD.
2 Our feet shall stand in thy gates, * O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem is built as a city * that is at unity in itself.
4 For thither the tribes go up, even the tribes of the LORD, *
to testify unto Israel, to give thanks unto the Name of the LORD.
5 For there is the seat of judgment, * even the seat of the
house of David.
6 O pray for the peace of Jerusalem; * they shall prosper that
love thee.
7 Peace be within thy walls, * and plenteousness within thy
palaces.
8 For my brethren and companions’ sakes, * I will wish thee
prosperity.
9 Yea, because of the house of the LORD our God, * I will seek
to do thee good.
