Pope supports Brazilian ecumenical Lenten campaign
Catholic World News - February 23, 2010
Pope Benedict XVI has sent a message of support to the Catholic bishops of Brazil as they begin their Fraternity Campaign, an annual Lenten tradition. This year's campaign-- which is being undertaken jointly by the Catholic bishops along with the National Council of Christian Churches and other Christian groups-- focuses on economic concerns, with the motto: "You cannot serve God and Mammon." In his message the Pope praises the participants "who this year have decided to unite their forces to reconcile people with God and to help them free themselves from slavery to money."
