On the Holy Father

Regarding Pope Pius XII;

"What about our Holy Father as one of the heroes of the day? Do we wear buttons to remind us of our spiritual leader? Do we hang on his words with breathless interest and greet his every utterance with joy? Do we examine what he says, weigh his words, follow his leadership? Do we meditate on what he has said, do we ponder it prayerfully, do we try to serve under his banner as valiant soldiers of Christ?" ... "Read instead all his encyclicals, his letters, and make a collection of them. He is our leader, he is the representative of Christ upon earth."
