Pope looks forward to November trip to Spain

CWN - July 26, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI mentioned his plan to travel to Spain in November during his midday audience on Sunday, July 25.

Speaking to a crowd gathered in the courtyard of his summer residence at Castel Gandolfo, the Pope welcomed a group of Spanish-speaking pilgrims, and recalled the ancient tradition of pilgrimages to the shire of Santiago at Compostela. He reminded them that he would be making his own pilgrimage to that shrine in November.

The Holy Father also expressed his sorrow over the news that a number of young people had died in a stampede during a concert in Duisburg, Germany. “I commend the dead, the injured, and their relatives to the Lord in my prayers," he said.
