Pope and the Curia end Spiritual Exercises

On Saturday morning the Lenten retreat for the Pope and the Roman Curia came to an end. The spiritual exercises in preparation for Easter, which had started on Sunday 21 with the exposure of the Eucharist and the celebration of Vespers, were held throughout the week in the "Redemptoris Mater" chapel of the Apostolic Palace, with morning and afternoon sessions in the presence of Benedict XVI. During the week, all papal audiences, including general Wednesday, were suspended. The meditations were given by Salesian priest, Enrico dal Covolo, who was thanked by the Pope.
