The Pope Addresses Educators

Pope Benedict's address to educators. If you haven't already, make sure to read it.
To all of you I say: bear witness to hope. Nourish your witness with prayer. Account for the hope that characterizes your lives (cf. 1 Pet 3:15) by living the truth which you propose to your students. Help them to know and love the One you have encountered, whose truth and goodness you have experienced with joy. With Saint Augustine, let us say: "we who speak and you who listen acknowledge ourselves as fellow disciples of a single teacher" (Sermons, 23:2). With these sentiments of communion, I gladly impart to you, your colleagues and students, and to your families, my Apostolic Blessing.

This is one of the very rare times I wish I had cable. All of my information about the pope's visit has been via the print media. I'd sure love to see the television coverage.

The conference of bishops has video of most of the events on their site:

We don't have cable either ;)
