Says Church's Mission Still the Same
VATICAN CITY, FEB. 11, 2009 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI says bishops of former Communist countries need to be ardent in their proclamation of the Gospel, and thus overcome the difficulties inherited in those nations.
This was the invitation sent in the Pope's name by his secretary of state, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, to a meeting of bishops from former Communist nations. The meeting, held in Croatia, ended today. It is the third time bishops of these nations have gathered in a meeting of this type.
