Pope asks prayers for trip to Africa

Catholic World News - November 14, 2011

As he concluded a public audience on Sunday, November 13, Pope Benedict XVI asked for prayers for the success of his visit to Africa this coming weekend.

The Holy Father will leave Rome on Friday, November 19, for Benin, where he will release the apostolic exhortation concluding the work of the 2nd African Synod. He said that he hoped the trip will " reaffirm the faith and hope of Christians in Africa.”

The Pope asked especially for prayers for those many people in Africa “experiencing insecurity and violence.”
