Pope Benedict XVI opens his house to the world

Oct 13, 2007 - 04:34 am .- At the reopening of the Bronze Door of the Apostolic Palace today, Pope Benedict had a message for the world. “The house of the Pope is open to everyone,” he said. The Holy Father also said that he hopes that those “who enter through the Bronze Door may feel ... they are welcomed by the Pope's embrace.” The Pope made his remarks as he inaugurated the "Portone di Bronzo" (Bronze Door), the principal entrance to the Vatican Apostolic Palace which is returning to service following almost two years of restoration work.
