Thanks for the link and your confidence in my ability to copare two sermons ;-) I'm at home and on dial up. To download that file would take more than 1 hour, so that is out of the question. This article does not provide the complete text. I will check the Vatican web site tomorrow and post the link. On first glance, though, what are your thoughts on the pope's message?
I think the Pope’s message is much in accord with the preaching in my home parish, which happens not to be Roman Catholic but Evangelical Lutheran. Perhaps I can find the text of the same to post so it would not take so long to see/download.
Thanks for the reply.
