VATICAN CITY, 15 JAN 2011 (VIS) - Benedict XVI today received members of the General Inspectorate for Public Security in the Vatican in a traditional meeting that takes place every year in January for the exchange of New Year greetings.

  The Pope expressed his appreciation for "the commitment and professionalism with which the officers of the Italian State Police, almost like 'guardian angels', watch over the Vatican day and night, guaranteeing the necessary security and placing themselves at the service of pilgrims".

  "May your presence at the heart of Christianity, where throngs of faithful constantly arrive to meet Peter's Successor and to visit the tombs of the Apostles, bring each of you to stimulate the spiritual dimension of your own life and the commitment to deepen your own Christian faith, bearing joyful witness to that faith with a coherent conduct".
