He went on to say that in the Bible, Christians can read and understand concrete ways in which faith helps people in their daily lives.

BENEDICT XVI

Towards the end of the general audience, Benedict XVI prayed for the people of Indonesia, where heavy floods have killed at least 20 people in Jakarta, and left thousands of others displaced.

BENEDICT XVI
“I want to express my closeness with the people who have been affected by this natural disaster. They are in my prayers. I also call for solidarity so that no one is left without necessary relief.”

This group of Polish nuns sang for the Pope. Their rhythm catched on quickly and eventually all the pilgrims in the Paul VI audience hall, clapped their hands, and joined in.
