The Papal Motto: “Miserando Atque Eligendo”

This image is hot off the Vatican website

My poor translation of it into English reads:

“Mercy saw him, and chose him”.

(I’m sure you can all do much better).

It comes from a sermon by St Bede on the Call of St Matthew.

What a wonderful Pope has been chosen for us!

Postscript: I wrote this post in haste, having not read the preceding post by Gertrude which covered the same subject, only better. I then hid this post in shame, but have now re-posted it so that you can all see my silliness. The great thing about belonging to the “Burrito” brotherhood is that one’s idiocy thereby becomes a virtue, of sorts. 

Please pray for me, as you might pray for everyone.


About Brother Burrito

A sinner who hopes in God's Mercy, and who cannot stop smiling since realizing that Christ IS the Way , the Truth and the Life. Alleluia!
