Pope ask to accept the "legitimate human differences"

Speaking in French, the Pope said that all men and women "are called to salvation" and he urged parents to educate their children in "universal fellowship."

The Pope?s words followed recent news on the decision of French President Nicolas Sarkozy to dismantle illegal camps inhabited Gypsies and to deport them to Romania, their country of origin.

Pope Benedict also prayed for peace and that efforts may be made to "overcome the logic of violence."

Benedicto XVI“May all people come to understand that in our world we have to help one another as brothers and sisters to build a civilization of love.”

Among the 4,000 pilgrims gathered for the Angelus, were a youth orchestra ?Fuoritempo?, which performed briefly for the Pope.PVB/TJCTVPP-BN-
