International Coalition of Priests, Abbots, Academics, Journalists, Publishers, Professors, and thousands of Faithful Catholics-- Rallies in Support of Pope Benedict
From Brazil to Spain to Germany to Australia to Mexico to France to Ireland and beyond--thousands sign International Declaration of Support for Holy Father

Remnant Press Release

(February 10, 2009) In addition to the list of influential signers of the Second International Declaration in Support of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI posted here on February 3, and here  on February 7, yet another hundred or so priests, academics, professors, magazine editors, lawyers, journalists and organization heads have signed the Declaration over the last two days (see below). We continue to post these lists so that it will be apparent to all that not only thousands of faithful Catholics but also hundreds of persons of influence in the Church and out are rallying in support of the Holy Father.


The list of faithful who have signed the Declaration topped 2,000 yesterday. We're so grateful to all those who have added their much needed support. Every name collected will be appended to the Declaration and sent to the Holy Father.  Please spread the word that we're looking to collect as many names as possible. We'd like to collect at least 10,000 before sending the Declaration to the Holy Father. If you have not already signed it, please click here. In addition, please send this link to news agencies, websites, blogs, news commentators, friends, family, etc. and help  spread the word, since, clearly, there isn't a moment to lose. God save the Pope!
