Pope welcomes Armenian prelates to Rome for Synod

Catholic World News - March 07, 2012

With the bishops of the Armenian Catholic Church gathering in Rome for a Synod meeting, Pope Benedict XVI offered his greetings and prayerful support for their assembly.

During his regular weekly public audience on March 7, the Holy Father welcomed Armenian Catholic Patriarch Nerses Bedros XIX Tarmouni, who was in attendance, and expressed his “sincere gratitude” for his leadership of the Armenian Church.

Pope Benedict promised his prayers for the success of the Synod meeting. He said that he would also continue his prayers for the people of the Middle East generally, and “encourage pastors and faithful to persevere with hope amidst the great suffering which afflicts those dear peoples.”
