No papal audience February 24 as Lenten Retreat continues

Catholic World News - February 24, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI did not hold his regular weekly public audience on Wednesday, February 24. The Holy Father has cancelled his audiences this week as he and the leaders of the Roman Curia make their annual Lenten Retreat.

The spiritual exercises, preached by the Salesian Father Enrico Dal Covolo, are centered on the general theme of the priesthood, with a more specific focus for each day's meditations, and a particular model of the priesthood raised each day.
