VATICAN CITY, 5 MAY 2011 (VIS) - This afternoon in the Vatican's Clementine Hall Benedict XVI received members of the Papal Foundation on their annual visit to Rome.

  "This meeting", the Pope said, "gives me a welcome opportunity to renew my thanks for the important contribution which the Foundation makes to the Church's mission by its promotion of charities close to the heart of the Pope. I am most grateful for your involvement in projects aimed at integral human development, your encouragement of the apostolic activities of dioceses and religious congregations throughout the world, your concern for the education of the Church's future leaders, and your support for the activities of the Holy See".

  The Holy Father recalled that the Papal Foundation "was born as a means of demonstrating practical solidarity with the Successor of Peter in his solicitude for the universal Church".

  "May you see your commitment to the ideals of the Foundation as a privileged expression of your Christian engagement in the Church and before the world. In this way, you will testify that the Church is missionary by her very nature".
