Pencils for Benedict XVI

So we would like to encourage people around the World to send to us an email explaining what Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI means to you, your personal experiences, your reflections...

With all your mails we will make up a book to deliver to Benedict XVI along with a box of pencils. These are symbolic gestures, through which each one of us shows him our love, respect and appreciation. It is a way to ask him to never stop writing in order that one of God's most exquisite instruments may continue to resonate.

Please send your emails to the following address: info@georgganswein.com

The deadline is Monday 30 September 2013.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.

During his recent visit to Brazil Pope Francis made a quote about Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. He said, "It's like having a grandfather at home. A very wise grandfather. In a family, a grandfather is at home, he is honored, loved and he is listened to."

The team of www.georgganswein.com have reflected on these words and we would like to propose the following initiative: "PENCILS FOR BENEDICT XVI"

We have all learned from Benedict XVI the true meaning of being a Christian through his words, his gestures, his whole being. He is a part of each of our lives in one way or another.
