In Bavaria, Italian president praises Pope Benedict
Catholic World News - February 27, 2013
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano, who is visiting Bavaria, took a moment on February 27 to praise the German region’s native son, Pope Benedict XVI.
The Italian president said that the Pope was in “my heartfelt and affectionate thoughts” as he approaches his resignation. Napolitano, who has struck a warm friendship with the Pontiff, is himself retiring in May as his presidential term comes to an end.
