Adress of Benedict XVI to Patriarch Mar Ignace Youssef III Younan

Your Beatitude,
The visit you are making to Rome to venerate the tombs of the Apostles and to meet the Successor of Peter is a cause of great joy to me. Today I renew with sincere and fraternal affection the greeting and kiss of peace in Christ which I exchanged with you following your election as Patriarch of Antioch for Syrians. I thank you for the cordial words you have addressed to me on behalf of your Patriarchal Church. I would also like to express my gratitude to His Beatitude Cardinal Ignace Moussa Daoud, Prefect emeritus of the Congregation for the Eastern Churches, and His Beatitude Ignace Pierre Abdel-Ahad, both Patriarchs emeritus of your Church, as well as to all the members of the Episcopal Synod. My gratitude becomes a prayer, particularly for you, Your Beatitude, the new Patriarch, as I accompany you with fraternal solidarity on the first steps of your ecclesial service. (...)
