Posted by Kendall Harmon

When the Church is allowed the freedom to exercise its ministry, which includes the right to own the material goods it needs, everybody wins, says Benedict XVI.

The Pope said this Saturday upon receiving the credentials of the new Czech envoy to the Holy See, Pavel Vosalik. The audience took place at the Papal summer residence of Castel Gandolfo.

"Hope is indeed the timeless message which the Church offers to every generation, and it prompts her to participate in the global task of forging bonds of peace and goodwill among all peoples," the Holy Father said in his introduction.

"She does this in a special way by her diplomatic activity, through which she extols the dignity of persons as destined for a life of communion with God and with one another," he added.
