Benedict XVI asks for prayer for peace in Cyprus

Benedict XVI will stay for three days in the mostly Orthodox country. He was invited by the Orthodox archbishop from Cyprus, Crisóstomos II, whom he has met with twice before.

Benedict XVI

“This week I am making an Apostolic Journey to Cyprus, to meet and pray with the Catholic and Orthodox faithful there and to consign the Instrumentum Laboris for the upcoming Special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on the Middle East.”

One of the most emotional moments during the trip will be his visit to Paphos, the place where St. Paul performed his first miracle.
