Pope prays for peace in the Holy Land

2010-02-01

This week two children from the religious movement Catholic Action of Rome, accompanied the pope from his window while he reflected on ‘St. Paul’s Hymn of Charity’.

Benedict XVI
“Charity is the ‘greatest’ gift, which gives value to all the others.”

Pope Benedict XVI said charity is what distinguishes a Christian and added that love is the essence of God himself and the light that gives goodness and beauty of every human existence.

Benedict XVI
“At the same time love is, so to say, the ‘style’ of God and of believers, it is the behaviour of those who, responding to the love of God, order their lives as a gift of self to God and to neighbor.”

On the second annual Day of Prayer and Peace for the Holy Land Pope Benedict XVI said he was spiritually united in prayer with Christians all around the globe and released two doves as a symbol of peace and hope to the world, but it took some extra effort.

“Ecco papa”

He also recognized World Day of Leprosy by greeting advocates for leprosy victims and praying for those who suffer from the disease.
