and Mrs. Bush Congratulate Pope Benedict XVI
The South Lawn
April 19, 2005
PRESIDENT: Laura and I offer our congratulations to Pope Benedict XVI.
He's a man of great wisdom and knowledge. He's a man who serves the
Lord. We remember well his sermon at the Pope's funeral in Rome, how his
words touched our hearts and the hearts of millions. We join with our
fellow citizens and millions around the world who pray for continued
strength and wisdom as His Holiness leads the Catholic Church.
Thank you all.
