The Pope invited the faithful to pray for the May 9-14 "apostolic pilgrimage and, in particular, for the 5th General Conference of the Episcopate of Latin America and the Caribbean, so that all the Christians of those regions may see themselves as disciples and missionaries of Christ, the way, the truth and the life."
I find it interesting that the Pope, who is nothing, if not precise, phrased his prayer request in this way: "All the Christians of those regions may see themselves as disciples and missionaries of Christ" If he was talking only about Catholics, he'd have said "the faithful".
I noticed that he is scheduled to meet with the representatives of other Christian confessions and religions and give an address on May 10, 2007. (per the Vatican website)
It will be interesting to who attends that gathering (and who doesn't) and what the Holy Father says.
