"Anyone Who Loves Is Ready to Suffer...."

Despite not a mention of his Year for Priests -- but, indeed, with a closing passage that could be read through the prism of the moment's lead story outside the Vatican walls -- here below in full, the Vatican translation of B16's homily from this Holy Thursday's Chrism Mass in St Peter's Basilica...

For the record: indeed, the shot above comes from the 2007 papal Chrism (homily).

Before the inbox gets even crazier than it's been of late, just keep in mind that it's 4.30am, the wire hasn't started posting today's shots yet and somebody really needs a nap....

Bottom line: be merciful for once, gang, alright?
