--The 1 September Vatican homily for the closing Mass of the Ratzinger Student Circle.
--The 3 September letter to the atheist journalist Piergiorgio Odifreddi, the full text in English in now on the National Catholic Register website.
The former is a reflection on humlity: on the grandeur of seeking the lowest place. The latter is a deep philosophical response to atheist bias, the full text of which is expected to be published with Odifreddi's new edition of his book to the Pope Emeritus.
A suggestion for the first memento of the Roman Canon: "Remember Lord your servant Pope Emeritus Benedict!"
Since the resignation I have been saying every Mass thus, to keep the Emeritus Pope in the heart of the prayer of the Mass daily.
Oremus pro pontifice emerito nostro Benedicto

The Carmelite Nuns of Alencon (Saint Therese's hometown) have just reverted to the extraordinary form for all of their sacred liturgies.
Saint Therese, from heaven, is undoubtedly pleased.
So is the Church militant!
