Catholic World News - November 03, 2010

At the conclusion of his regular weekly public audience on November 3, Pope Benedict XVI asked the faithful to "accompany me with your fervent prayers this weekend" as he travels to Spain.

The Pope will visit Santiago de Compestela, the traditional European pilgrimage site, and Barcelona, where he will dedicate the Sagrada Familia cathedral.

    I had heard that the Holy Father is calling this next year "Year of Spain." Beginning with his trip this weekend and ending with the World Youth Day in Madrid next summer. Anyone know anything more about this? Sounds like a great idea since Spain is one former Catholic country which has become secularized. Could this be the beginning of a trend? Bringing back Christianity to Europe? The torch is passed to the Catholic youth of Europe and the World!
