For some the small stuff does not count, but for many of us it does.
So the next time you find yourself at the P.T. Barnum ordinations under the big top in Winona let His Grace know the right way to address a prelate in writing (the red letters are those which I have changed so as to be in correct form)...
Amidst this tremendous media storm stirred up by imprudent remarks of mine on Swedish television, I beg of You to accept, only as is properly respectful, my sincere regrets for having caused to Yourself and to the Holy Father so much unnecessary distress and problems.
For me, all that matters is the Truth Incarnate, and the interests of His one true Church, through which alone we can save our souls and give eternal glory, in our little way, to Almighty God. So I have only one comment, from the prophet Jonas, I, 12:
"Take me up and throw me into the sea; then the sea will quiet down for you; for I know it is because of me that this great tempest has come upon you."
Please also accept, and convey to the Holy Father, my sincere personal thanks for the document signed last Wednesday and made public on Saturday. Most humbly I will offer a Mass for both of You.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
N.B. And "Sincerely yours in Christ" sounds a bit Anglican/Evangelical. It's always safe to instead write: "Asking the blessing of Your Eminence, I remain, Sincerely Yours in Christ."
