Pave Benedikt ankom tidligere i dag Bayern og München, og skal være ulike steder i Bayern fram til torsdag. Programmet for hans reise finner man på norsk her. Temaet for hans reise er som vi ser på bildet: Den som tror er aldri aleine.

Paven stod i ettermiddag på Marienplatz, utenfor domkirken, Frauenkirche, i sentrum av München og mintes at han for 30 år siden hadde blitt godt mottat som erkebiskop samme sted.

It is deeply moving for me, to once again stand in this beautiful place, at the foot of the column of Mary – this place, that has witnessed two turning points of my life before.

Here, the faithful gave me a heartfelt welcome 30 years ago and I entrusted my path to the Mother of God. The leap from professor into the service of the Archdiocese of München-Freising was enormous. Under such protection and with such noticeable love of the people of Muenchen and Bayern could I dare to take over this ministry as successor of Kardinal Doepfner.

1982 I was here again, bidding farewell. Back then, the archbishop of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the future Kardinal Seper was with me, surprised by so much affection shown to me in Munich and said “The people of Munich are like those of Naples, they want to touch their archbishop and they love him”. I was allowed to get to know the Bavarian heart in this place, where I once again entrusted myself to the Mother of God.

Jeg kommer sannsynligvis ikke til å skrive mye om besøket her, men viser til katolsk.no’s samleside om dagene i Bayern, med linker også til internasjonale sider.

    Paven ser som vanlig sprek ut og i godt humør.
