Rome, November 14 - Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday
called on the Italian parliament to always aim their efforts
towards "the common good" as his predecessor John Paul II called
them to do.
In a message marking the 10th anniversary of John Paul's
visit to the House, the pontiff called on Italian lawmakers to
"renew his invitation to tap the heart of Christianity, a
spiritual heritage that offers adequate resources," in order for
those in public office to aim towards "the common good".
His message came as protesters in a pan-European austerity
demonstration gathered outside the parliament and other
government offices.
Clashes with hardline student protesters had led to at
least three police injuries outside the premier's office, while
over 100 demonstrations were taking place around the country and
countless more around the EU after the European Trade Union
Confederation called to walk out on the job Wednesday.
Benedict said John Paul's message was even more urgent
today "given the difficult social context surrounding the
crisis".
