Pope Benedict's Trip to Turkey
Well, the Pope's trip seems to be going well and I hope that it continues to be a peaceful trip. Yesterday our Holy Father was in the house that was believed to be where Mary resided with the apostle John for the last years of her life. It was the smallest gathering for a outdoor papal Mass with only 250 guests. I guess you could say that it reflected the small Christian presence in Turkey. This morning our Holy Father attended Divine Liturgy with the Patriarch Bartholomew I celebrating the feast of St. Andrew and then later in the day Benedict and Bartholomew signed a joint declaration. So share with My World you thoughts on this apostolic trip. Do you think this will make a great impact on the Muslims? Do you think our relationship with the Orthdox Church will improve? Just send me your thoughts.
