Pilgrims and protesters await Pope's arrival in Spain

Catholic World News - November 05, 2010

Thousands of Catholic pilgrims and hundreds of anti-Catholic activists are gathering in Spain in anticipation of the weekend visit by Pope Benedict XVI.

Protesters will be outnumbered by loyal Catholics as the Pope visits Santiago de Compostela and Barcelona, but the demonstrations will undoubtedly attract more attention from the secular media. Homosexual activists have announced a “kiss-in” demonstration in Barcelona at the time of the Pope’s appearance there.

Police intervened on Thursday night in Santiago de Compostela as anti-Catholics threatened to turn violent.
