Holy Father highlights charity of new 'blesseds'

.- Following yesterday's recitation of the Regina Coeli, Pope Benedict briefly spoke about the lives of two priests, Angelo Paoli and Jose Tous y Soler, who were proclaimed “blessed” on Sunday.  

The Holy Father explained that Angelo Paoli was an “apostle of charity in Rome, nicknamed the 'father of the poor.' He dedicated himself particularly to sick and convalescent people in the hospital of San Giovanni."

The Pope then spoke of Jose Tous Y Soler, founder of the Institute of the Capuchin sisters of the Mother of the Divine Shepherd, who “despite numerous trials and difficulties, never allowed himself to be overcome with bitterness or resentment. He stood out for his exquisite charity and his capacity to bear and understand the shortcomings of others.”

Benedict XVI finished his remarks by addressing the Italian organization “Meter,” which has promoted a national day for child victims of violence for the past 14 years.  “On this occasion I particularly want to thank and encourage those who dedicate themselves to prevention and education, especially parents and teachers, and the many priests, nuns, catechists and animators who work with children in parishes, schools and associations."
