Pope Benedict XVI and the Roman Curia have begun their Lenten retreat gathered in the Redemptoris Mater Chapel in the Apostolic Palace. For this reason all audience and activities, are suspended until Saturday March 3. Therefore there will be no Wednesday general audience this week. The Spiritual Exercises this year are preached by Cardinal Monsengwo Pasinya, Archbishop of Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo, on the theme: The communion of the Christian with God. Sunday morning talking to the faithful before the Angelus prayer, Benedict XVI noted that in Lent we renew our relationship with God through prayer, acts of penance, works of fraternal charity.
