The Day in Quotes: Pope Benedict XVI visits Mexico

March 23, 2012
3 memorable quotes from Day 1 of Pope Benedict's XVI's Apostolic Voyage to Mexico.
"The church is not a political power, it’s not a party, but a moral reality, a moral force"
"Together with faith and hope, the believer in Christ – indeed the whole Church – lives and practises charity as an essential element of mission."
"This country and the entire continent are called to live their hope in God as a profound conviction, transforming it into an attitude of the heart and a practical commitment to walk together in the building of a better world."
Programming note: Day 2 of our coverage of the Apostolic Visit to Mexico will begin tomorrow at 8:00 pm ET/5:00 pm PT LIVE with the Pope's courtesy visit to Felipe Calderón, the Federal President, in the House of Conde Rul.
