.- International humanitarian organization, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) has offered its thanks to Pope Benedict XVI for his “precious endorsement” of their ministry during a speech in which he praised Catholic organizations which offer social help and evangelization to the world.

At the conclusion of their twice-yearly conference in Germany, the organization’s directors sent a message to the Holy Father thanking him for his preaching while in Bavaria, “and in particular for his homily at the Mass in Munich, when he addressed some of his remarks to the charitable agencies.”

In a press release sent today, ACN said that the Pope’s words are particularly relevant for them, “since the pastoral dimension which he urged, even in the case of social projects, has always been an indispensable condition for their collaboration and help throughout the world.”

ACN thanked Benedict for his “precious endorsement” and “valuable encouragement” which, they said, strengthens the resolve of their leadership and has “awakened the desire” in them to ask for a “word of guidance and direction” from the Pontiff in his roll as “Shepherd of the Universal Church.”
