The "Rain" of Pope Benedict XVI

Today's audience held in the wind and rain at St. Peter's...

  1. New book on Jesus.
  2. Will be accompanied by 2,000 Journalists on trip to Turkey
  3. Prays for rain to stop:
    “Let us hope that the Lord is propitious and makes this rain stop,” said the pope, whose words were followed shortly afterwards by a timid ray of sun. “I would like to thank the Lord for giving us a moment of light and a break from the rain,” he added jokingly at the end of the audience.
