Pope invited to address European Parliament
Comment Email Print
 Pope Benedict has been invited to speak to the European Parliament by its president, Hans-Gert Pöttering. A press statement from the EU said that Pöttering made the invitation during a private audience with the Holy Father. During his visit to Italy's capital, the German-born president took part in a congress organized by European bishops to mark the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome. Pöttering has always called for the emphasis of Europe's Christian roots in debates about the EU constitution. In 1988 Pope John Paul II spoke before the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
