Pope Remembers The Generosity Of Pius XII

2009-04-02

Benedict XVI
Nobody will ever be able to erase from the memory of history that generous gesture of my venerable Predecessor, who immediately ran to help and console the people who were harshly hit, among the still smoking ruins.


The Pope began the period of Advent with this visit., an Advent dramatically accompanied by news of serious violence. During the Angelus, he condemned the brutal terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India, and the fighting that has broken out in Jos, Nigeria, which have caused hundreds of deaths.

Benedict XVI
The causes and the circumstances of these tragic events are different but the horror and the disapproval of the explosion of such cruel and senseless violence must be the same.

The Pontiff asked to appeal to God to touch the hearts of those who falsely believe that this is the way to resolve local or international problems. And he invited everyone to feel encouraged to offer an example of meekness and love to build a society worthy of God and man.
