Benedict XVI calls on Saint Martín de Porres for support in New Evangelization

2012-05-07

Benedict XVI
“If people incline their heart toward God and ask for his help, they will receive the strength to carry out their work. For this reason, human freedom and the power of God go together.”

Benedict XVI also spoke about the figure of the Peruvian saint Martín de Porres, who was canonized by Pope John XXIII fifty years ago  on May 6, 1962.

Benedict XVI
“Today we remember also the fiftieth anniversary of the canonization of St. Martín de Porres, who we ask to intercede for the work of the New Evangelization, which kindles holiness in the Church.”

Next Sunday is May 13, the feast day of Our Lady of Fatima. To celebrate, Benedict XVI will pray the Regina Coeli in the Italian city of Arezzo, where he will make a pastoral visit.
