Catholic university to mark Pope Benedict's 60 years in priesthood

.- The San Antonio Catholic University of Murcia, Spain will host a worldwide congress Oct. 26-30 to honor Pope Benedict XVI on the 60th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood.

Cardinal Antonio Canizares, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, will preside over the event titled, “Benedict XVI: A Pope for the Third Millennium.”

The Holy See recently announced its approval for the worldwide congress.

In Spring 2010, the university hosted a congress in honor of the late John Paul II, whose beatification will take place in Rome on May 1. The prestigious sculptor Venancio Blanco unveiled a bronze statue of Pope John Paul II at the 2010 congress.  

Blanco will create a sculpture of Benedict XVI for the event in October, which also will be displayed permanently on campus.

Experts from around the world are expected to attend the congress to share their reflections on the life and works of Pope Benedict XVI.
