The Hands of a Shepherd

I saw this on another weblog and indeed we need to support and pray for our bishops . It is truly biblical . Here is the Bishop of Rome with the Bishop of Calgary, Frederick Henry.

And when Moses lifted up his hands, Israel overcame: but if he let them down a little, Amalek overcame. And Moses' hands were heavy: so they took a stone, and put under him, and he sat on it: and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands on both sides. And it came to pass that his hands were not weary until sunset. Exodus 17:11

Benedict XVI sits on Peter's Chair.
It is like referring to a “chairman” of a company or committee. He occupies the “chair,” therefore he has authority.- David Armstrong
....and Peter is like Moses . Read Isaiah 40:9  in reference to Peter's chair ----;"go up on a high mountain, joyful messenger to Zion; shout with a loud voice, joyful messenger to Jerusalem; shout without fear, say to the towns of Judah, 'Here is your God!'" your New Jerusalem is at hand...(NJB)

...see whom Jesus has chosen to sit in Peter's Chair and to whom He once said: "you are Peter and on this rock I will build My Church; and the gates of the underworld can never hold out against it; I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: whatever you bind on earth shall be considered bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth shall be considered loosed in heaven;" Mt. 16:18-19
