Pope speaks of challenges in NZ, Pacific
Pope Benedict XVI has told visiting New Zealand and Pacific Island bishops that abstaining from “earthly passions” is becoming more challenging as society becomes more secular.
The Roman Catholic Church's “new evangelization”, the Pope's attempt to counter secular trends in traditionally Christian countries, was discussed when the bishops met him on Saturday as part of their five-yearly visit to the Vatican.
