"The General Government of the Redemptorists is confident that the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to the United States will be a blessing for all the citizens of that country. Americans will be impressed by the simplicity, intelligence and spiritual depth of the Holy Father. We pray that his address to the United Nations will serve to unite the member states in a real commitment to peace that is based on justice."
