Pope presented with altar for Jerusalem

.- At the conclusion of the Wednesday General Audience this week, Pope Benedict XVI offered praise for the plan by a Polish association to raise “an altar to pray for peace in the Holy Land and in the whole world.”

According to the L’Osservatore Romano, the altar was brought to the Pope by the Polish association “Queen of Peace Community.” During his greetings in various languages at the conclusion of the audience, the Pope thanked the Poles for the altar.

The altar, which was blessed by the Pope, features a monstrance decorated with an image of Our Lady of Czestochowa with the Child Jesus.  After a pilgrimage to the Marian shrines of Poland and Germany, the altar will be placed in the Armenian Chapel of the Fourth Station of the Cross in Jerusalem.
