His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, Departs for Brazil
Let us keep the Holy Father in prayer as he travels to Brazil. Let us pray for the Church in this most Catholic of countries and throughout Latin America, for its bishops, whose plenary meeting the Holy Father is there to attend. Over at Whispers, Rocco reports on the Holy Father's airborne press conference, a traditional feature of papal trips, in which Pope Benedict minces no words in his support of the Mexican Bishops' response to the Mexico City law allowing unrestricted access to abortion in the first tri-mester of pregnancy.
Holy Mary, Mother of God- pray for us!
