“Dear Brothers and Sisters,
After the great Pope John Paul II, the cardinals have chosen me -- a simple and humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord.
It consoles me that the Lord knows how to work and to act even with inadequate instruments, so above all, I entrust myself to your prayers.
In the joy of the Risen Lord, trusting in his unfailing help, let us move forward, that the Lord will help us and Mary, his Most Holy Mother, might be by our side. Thank you.”
