 Pope Benedict plans to hold a special synod on Africa. He made the announcement after his general audience yesterday, which was attended by members of the Special Council for Africa of the Synod of Bishops who have been meeting at the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops. The Pope said: "confirming the decision made by my venerated predecessor last November 13, I wish to announce my intention to call the Second Special Assembly for Africa of the Synod of Bishops. "I have great hopes that such a gathering will mark a further impulse for evangelization on the African continent, the consolidation and growth of theChurch and the promotion of reconciliation and peace."
