Many of the Catholic movements were well represented at the last general audience for Benedict XVI. The Shalom Catholic Community was no exception. They traveled from Brazil to Rome to give the Pope a message. MOYSES AZEVEDO
Founder, Shalom Catholic Community“All these people, an entire population is happily united at heart with the Holy Father to tell him: 'Thank you Holy Father, thank you Benedict XVI, for all you've done for us.”
