Benedict XVI calls for the end of violence in Libya

Bendict XVIAs I raise my prayers to the Lord for a return to harmony in Libya and in the entire region of North Africa, I make a heartfelt appeal to international organisations and to political and military leaders for the immediate launch of a dialogue that will halt the use of arms.” The Pope also stressed the importance of personal prayer, especially during the season of Lent. Benedict XVI“Jesus waits for us, especially in this Lenten season, to speak with our heart, with my heart. Let?s stop and look for a moment of silence in our room, in a secluded place. Let?s hear his voice saying: ?if you knew the gift of God.?” Benedict XVI explained that Jesus is thirsty for the faith of each person and said that during Lent, “God expects every person to speak from your heart.” CB/AECTV JM BN
