Ah, Napoli!

~Pope Benedict is traveling to Naples this Sunday for talks with leaders of different world religions. Here's his schedule via the Holy See website.

Piazza del Plebiscito...a wild place to be when Naples wins a football game.

Here's a report via Papa Ratzinger Forum from Panorama Magazine on Pope Benedict's style of ecumenism.
Ratzinger is almost certain to surprise everyone with what he says, for he does not care about political correctness. Since he was Prefect of the Congregatiom for the Doctrine of the Faith, he has always maintained with the Church that 'the only true religion subsists in the Catholic and apostolic church.'

Forceful assertive of the identity and role of the Catholic faith, Benedict XVI has nevertheless made dialog with other religions as one of the priorities of his Pontificate.

Yes, he was the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which makes him a henchman to some whom oppose him. I am glad he’s not P.C..
