Memorial of Pope St. Pius V
Celebrate the end of John Paul the Great's pontificate and the beginning of Benedict XVI's by participating in The Troglodyte's Peter's Pence Drive. There are two ways you can offer your support. First by purchasing merchandise from the newly opened CaveMart online store. You can choose from more than 25 items recognizing either Pope Benedict (many with the cheeky tagline from the notorious Asian Times article), or the late Pope John Paul, and more than 35 items overall, with 100% of the net proceeds going to the Vatican's Peter's Pence Fund. Satisfaction is guaranteed. If you would like, you can also make a secure online donation through the Vatican website. You may use American Express, Visa, MasterCard, or Diners. The Peter's Pence Drive runs from May 1st through May 31st.
Peter's Pence is the name given to the financial support offered by the faithful to the Holy Father as a sign of their sharing in the concern of Successor of Peter for the many different needs of the Universal Church and for the relief of those in most need.
