Pope Benedict XVI in the Holy Land

Front Cover
Paulist Press, 2011 - Religion - 159 pages
This book chronicles the historic May 2009 papal visit to the Holy Land by following the itinerary and providing a complete collection of Pope Benedict XVI's addresses, reflections, and speeches given at religious sites and various locations, including Yad Vashem and the Western Wall, and meetings with religious leaders and political officials. These are the pope's own words as a pilgrim on a journey of faith and as the leader of the Catholic Church.

As another volume in the Stimulus Books series, which is designed to promote and foster mutual understanding between Jews and Christians, this collection of the pope's words is complemented by the concluding reflections from two prominent scholars and participants in the Jewish-Christian dialogue from the Tantur Ecumenical Institute, Rev. Michael McGarry, CSP, and Dr. Deborah Weissman, both of whom witnessed firsthand the local responses to the papal visit.
