Pope Benedict XVI to offer prayers in Bethlehem for children of Gaza

.- During his apostolic trip to the Holy Land, Pope Benedict XVI will offer special prayers for the children of the Gaza Strip during the Mass he will celebrate in Bethlehem on May 13.

The Vatican’s website published the prayers along with the entire order of the Mass on its website in Arabic, Italian, French, English and German (www.vatican.va).

The prayer reads as follows: “For all of the children of the world, in particular for those who suffer from deprivation, infirmities and poverty, that their rights may be recognized and concrete work may be done to guarantee their growth in serenity and joy. We pray for the children of Gaza who have died or have been left orphans and live in misery and fear.”
