VATICAN CITY, 9 FEB 2011 (VIS) - At the end of today's general audience, the Pope addressed a greeting to bishops who are spending this week in Castelgandolfo to participate in a meeting promoted by the "Focolari" Movement.

  "I am pleased that you are having this opportunity to exchange ecclesial experiences from various parts of the world, and I trust that these days of prayer and reflection may help to bring abundant fruits for your communities", he said.

  The Holy Father also had words of greeting for members of "New Horizons", which has just received pontifical recognition as an international association of faithful. "While encouraging you to continue your courageous apostolate in support of our brothers and sisters in difficulties", he told them, "I exhort you to bear witness to the Gospel in charity, spreading the light, peace and joy of the risen Christ".
