Pope dedicates Australian pilgrimage center in Rome

Catholic World News - October 19, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI traveled across Rome on October 19 to participate in ceremonies dedicating a new house of pilgrimage for Australians.

The "Domus Australia," which will be open to all guests but dedicated especially to Australians, is being inaugurated at a time when the bishops of that country are in Rome for their ad limina visits. In launching the center for Australian visitors, the Pope referred to his visit to Australia three years ago:

I recall with particular gratitude the warmth of the hospitality that was extended to me when I visited your country for World Youth Day in 2008, and now I have the opportunity to reciprocate by welcoming all of you to Rome.
