Good morning Brothers and Sisters! Just thought to share this intersesting article. "The pope prays for all people who speak Arabic. May God bless you all." Seems the Peace and Security by worldwide politicians has become futile. Now, it's the Pope's turn to try. Lately, turn of events have become quite interesting.

Pope prays in Arabic for first time

Pope Benedict XVI has pronounced a blessing in Arabic at his weekly audience in front of 20,000 pilgrims on St Peter's Square -- the first time the language has been used at such an event.

AFP - Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday pronounced a blessing in Arabic at his weekly audience in front of 20,000 pilgrims on St Peter's Square -- the first time the language has been used at such an event.

"The pope prays for all Arabic speakers. May God bless you all!" the pope said in Arabic at the audience, after a bishop read out an Arabic translation of the pope's comments praising the results of the Second Vatican Council.

The landmark Council, which began 50 years ago this week, is a "compass" for the Catholic Church "in the middle of the storms", the pope said.

As a young reformer, the then Joseph Ratzinger took part in the Council, better known as Vatican II, which revolutionised Catholic rituals.

The Council brought together 2,250 bishops and lasted from 1962 until 1965.

The pope has always defended the 15 "constitutions" adopted by the Council despite complaints from traditionalists in the Church over several reforms.

Benedict will celebrate mass on St Peter's Square on Thursday to launch a "Year of Faith" on the exact anniversary of the start of Vatican II.
