The Holy Father in France

France, known as the eldest daughter of the Church, today welcomes the Holy Father, Pope Benedict on his pastoral visit. There is an official site of the French Bishops' Conference (en français) which gives the programme and other details. He will be in Paris today and will leave for Lourdes tomorrow afternoon. All of the discourses will be worth following, of course, but it will be interesting to read the address to the French Bishops at the hemicycle on Sunday.

For an insight into liturgical matters, see the interview with Mgr Marini in Le Figaro, translated at the NLM. They also have the Sacramentary for the visit.

Fr Tim Finagan pastor of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church, Blackfen, Kent posted this today. Thanks father and a tip of the beret to you.

Jhesu+ Marie,
de Brantigny
