Pope asks Catholics to pray for Mary’s intercession in Holy Land

.- After praying the Angelus with the faithful gathered in front of the house at Les Combes in Italy's Valle d'Aosta region which he is spending a brief holiday, Pope Benedict XVI called on people to pray for peace in the Holy Land and, in a special way, to pray for the intercession of Mary.

Earlier in the day, during a visit to the Carmelite monastery in nearby Quart, the Holy Father assured the solidarity of the whole church with the religious and lay of Haifa, which has suffered several missile attacks by Hezbollah.
 
"Let us pray to Mary Queen of Peace," said Benedict, "that she may implore from God the fundamental gift of harmony, bringing political leaders back to the way of reason and opening new possibilities of dialogue and understanding. With this in mind, I invite the local Churches to raise special prayers for peace in the Holy Land and in the entire Middle East."
