Cardinal Bertone confirms Pope has been invited to visit Peru

.- Speaking on Vatican Radio from Chimbote, Peru, where he is participating in the 9th National Eucharistic Congress, Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, said Pope Benedict XVI has been invited to visit Peru.  The cardinal said President Alan Garcia has issued an official invitation to the Pontiff to visit the South American country.

Cardinal Bertone, who during his visit to Peru has also traveled to the areas most affected by the recent earthquake, also said he would inform the Pope about “all of the experiences I have had” during his travels, and he praised the “dignity” with which Peruvians have faced the tragedy.

He also said he would tell the Holy Father of the “strong, intense and very existential faith of the Peruvian people,” who he said are “rich in faith, tradition, charity and solidarity.”
