Pope Benedict XVI’s papal visit to Africa

Pope Benedict has embarked on his papal visit to the African nations of Cameroon and Angola from March 17-23, 2009.

Forgive me for indulging in an act of ‘shameless self promotion’ — but the Benedict XVI Fan Club (of which I am the administrator) will be providing regular roundups of news, coverage and commentary on the Pope’s visit to Africa from religious and secular media, and will be linking to the Pope’s addresses as they become available.

  1. Needless to say, the roundups will be selective — while hardly ‘news’, the secular media considers it a source of headline-worthy controversy that the Pope believes that “a tragedy that cannot be overcome by money alone, that cannot be overcome through the distribution of condoms, which even aggravates the problems”, considering this the dominant story.

    Historic. Necessary. A journey to where the Church is going. Godspeed to our dear Chief Shepherd on this most important apostolic mission.

  3. Its quite historic and i am just excited about the development,As the treks through Africa,it means much for us all,and will surely bring bout stronger bonds of love and encouragement to the people.

    Lets all pray for our papa.
