Hon Speaker, I move without notice:
That the House -
(1) congratulates the 1,2 billion worldwide community of Catholics on the election of the head of the church, the Vicar of Christ and Bishop of Rome, His Holiness Pope Francis I;
(2) thanks Pope Benedict XVI for eight years of spiritual leadership, focusing on preaching about God's love for humankind;
(3) commends him for being an outspoken advocate of justice for the poor; and
(4) wishes His Holiness Pope Francis I strength, perseverance and fortitude in leading Catholics forward during these times of change, characterised by ever-growing spiritual and moral challenges which call upon the church to evolve and adjust to them.
