Munich, February 27 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano on Wednesday lauded Pope Benedict XVI for the
"responsibility" he showed in stepping down because of failing
strength and said the Catholic Church was facing a "crucial
moment".
In a speech in Bavaria, which he recalled was the native
region of the pope who is stepping down Thursday, Napolitano
said: "I send my affectionate thoughts to the pope as well as my
admiration for the responsibility he showed when faced with the
trials of his leadership in a crucial moment for the Catholic
Church".
Napolitano added that Germany and Italy shared an "intense
communion of faith and religious values" and said rights and
welfare were "assured" by their membership of the European
Union.
Napolitano is on a three-day State visit to Germany.
