Bishop Libasci to celebrate special mass for Pope Benedict


MANCHESTER - As Pope Benedict XVI ends his Pontificate on Thursday, Bishop Libasci will celebrate a special Mass Thursday at St. Joseph Cathedral Chapel at 12:10 p.m.

The bishop also requests that all daily Masses celebrated across New Hampshire before 2 p.m. Thursday be celebrated for the Pope.

In addition, Bishop Libasci is asking that church bells throughout the Diocese of Manchester be rung in unison as a sign of affection and gratitude for the Holy Father.

In recognition of his eight year Pontificate, bells will ring for eight minutes, ending at 2 p.m.

These bells will join those of other churches throughout the United States and Europe that will ring as Pope Benedict resigns the Chair of Peter at 8 p.m. Rome time.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
