Benedict XVI invites visiting Cuban bishops to pray Rosary with him

Catholic World News - September 01, 2014

Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI surprised a group of Cuban bishops on August 28 by inviting them to join him in praying the Rosary in the Vatican gardens.

The bishops of Cuba were at the Vatican for the installation of an image of Our Lady of Cobre, their national patron, in the Vatican gardens. After the ceremony, they received a message from the retired Pontiff, asking them to pray the Rosary with him at the same site that evening.

Benedict XVI led the recitation of the Rosary. He and the Cuban prelates were joined by his secretary, Archbishop Georg Ganswein, and the former Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarscisio Bertone.
