Did you hear that World Youth Day pilgrims have been receiving text messages from Pope Benedict? They signed up to get the messages by texting the word POPE to a particular number.

The first text message, received Monday, read, "Young friend, God and his people expect much from u because u have within u the Fathers supreme gift: the Spirit of Jesus - BXVI."

On Wednesday, after Pope Benedict had a visit with native animals, pilgrims received, "The Holy Spirit gave the Apostles & gives u the power boldly 2 proclaim that Christ is risen! - BXVI."

Thursday afternoon, shortly before his official arrival to WYD, the Holy Father's third text message was, "The Holy Spirit is the principal agent of salvation history: let him write your life-history 2 - BXVI."

Friday morning's: "The spirit impels us 4ward 2wards others; the fire of his love makes us missionaries of God's charity. See u tomorrow nite - BXVI."

This leads me to wonder...
If Jesus had decided to be born roughly 2000 years after when he did, WWJT?
