Pope Benedict's Trip to Malta

Pope Benedict XVI will be in Malta April 17-18.

Malta is mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles as the place where the apostle Paul and others came ashore after a shipwreck on the way to Rome. (Acts 27:27 to 28:10.)

Please pray that this visit will encourage the Church in Malta to a deeper faith in Christ and for the safety of Pope Benedict as he travels there.
