Pope striving for examination (of Christianity) by religious leaders(Translation mine!)
Rome - During mass, celebrating Epiphany, Pope Benedict XVI has asked the leaders of other religions to embark on an examination of Jesus Christ. (ht/sda)
He invites them to approach the "light of Christ" who went into being to "complete" the religious history of civilisation, "not to dismiss it", the church father said in his sermon at St Peter's Cathedral.
Benedict compared The Adoration of the Magi with the "three constitutive dimensions of modern mankind: politics, science and religion", which all three need "the light of Christ".
After the service the pope prayed Angelus for thousands of worshippers from the window of his office at St Peter's Square.
May God grant a long life to the lonely old man in the Vatican.
