Benedict XVI Offers Kind Words to President-Elect

From Reuters:

Pope Benedict XVI sent a telegram of congratulations to Obama yesterday to hail the “historic occasion”, Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said. The Roman Catholic pontiff offered Obama “his blessing so that God will support him and the American people, and that all people of goodwill can work to build a world of peace, solidarity and justice,” Lombardi said.

I'm wondering if the United States can be part of building a world wherein every life is respected. Where abortion isn't a choice and the infirmed expendable. It seems that a world of peace, solidarity and justice would be the world of people not consumed by a drive to secure their own well-being; rather, they would vigilantly be working for others'.

Doesn't quite seem to be the way of a FOCA backing man, but with God all things are possible. Thanks be to God that we may rely upon Him.
