Pope and curia conclude Lenten retreat


Vatican City: March 19, 2011. (Vatican Radio) Pope Benedict and the Roman Curia concluded their week-long Lenten spiritual exercises Saturday morning.

Preacher, the French Carmelite, Father Lethel, explored the theme of holiness, drawing on the figure of John Paul II in view of the upcoming beatification. Pope Benedict XVI, in thanking father Lethel, noted that the meditations were in line with his catechesis on the figures of the saints in the general audience. The Pope said this contemplation on the mystery of Christ reflected in the existence of his most faithful followers is a key element he inherited from Pope John Paul II and one he continues with complete conviction and great joy . The last meditation on Saturday morning was devoted to the figure of St Joseph, coinciding with the Saint’s feast day and onomastic of the Holy Father, who received the best wishes of the Roman Curia.
