"Mr President, there is a strong tradition of inviting personalities from the contemporary world to visit the European Parliament. I therefore take the liberty of calling on you to invite the Holy Father Benedict XVI to the European Parliament. I am sure many others in the House today support my call. Pope Benedict has recently been invited to the UN. Benedict XVI is both the leader of the Catholic Church and Head of State of the Vatican. His message to Europe and the world is not exclusively religious. It also relates to the main issues of concern to contemporary society. Extending an invitation to the Pope would not only demonstrate our hospitality but also provide an opportunity for the humanity and nobility of that figure in white to become better known. That person may not command any divisions, but he is nonetheless anxious about the future of Europe, a Europe that must not be ashamed of its Christian roots."@en1
