He began on a humble note: "At this moment, weak servant of God that I am, I must assume this enormous task, which truly exceeds all human capacity. How can I do this? How will I be able to do he asked. Then, invoking saints and Catholics at large, he said: "1 am not alone. I do not have to carry alone what in truth I could never carry alone."
