THE POPE BLESSES A STATUE OF SAINT GENEVIEVE TORRES

VATICAN CITY, OCT 4, 2006 (VIS) - Before the general audience held in St. Peter's Square, Benedict XVI blessed a marble statue of Saint Genevieve Torres Morales, placed in an alcove in the external, back part of the Vatican Basilica.

The Spanish Saint founded the Congregation of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Holy Angels (Angelics) and was canonized by John Paul II on May 4 2003 in Madrid.

At the end of the audience, the Holy Father went to a small room, of the Paul VI Hall, where during a brief ceremony he was given the title of honorary citizen of Aschau am Inn (Archdiocese of Munich and Freising, Germany).
