Name of the week a: Benedict

Pope Benedict
Pope Benedict

In honour of the pope leaving office this weeks name of the week a is Benedict. According to my RE Teacher they will have a Pope election to decide who becomes the next pope which is exciting for me as we are learning about the line of Popes from Saint Peter to the present day and while were learning about it we get a Pope election. Benedict means blessed (which a pope is) and has never ranked and could be used instead of Benjamin which was number 12 in NSW. I wish Pope Benedict happiness in his retirement.

One thought on “Name of the week a: Benedict

  1. I really like the name Benedict, but people seem to have real issues with it (Eggs Benedict etc).

    I think it seems more distinguished than Benjamin.

    It will be interesting to know what the new pope will be called.
