Pope Benedict XVI Meets with Hugo Chavez

Pope Benedict XVI recently met with Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez. Venezuela is neighbor to Colombia. Colombia's law previously outlawed abortion in all cases. But, the day Chavez met with the Holy Father (last Thursday) was the day that a Colombian court ruled abortion may be permitted in rare circumstances.

Chavez said the 35 minute meeting was overall "very positive" and called it "the beginning of a new era in the relationship between the Catholic hierarchy and the Venezuelan Government." Chavez claims to be a Catholic, but he has frequently criticized the Church. He was gone so far to call the Church's leadership a "tumor".

Let us pray that Colombia will reverse its decision in order to stop the culture of death from spreading.
