So far the meditations are only available in Italian, but beautiful art work reflecting the meditations done by the Chinese Archbishop here.
Blames him for Danish cartoons of three years ago, from Reuters:
Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden threatened the European Union with grave punishment on Wednesday over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad.
In an audio recording posted on the Internet, Bin Laden said the cartoons were part of a “crusade” in which he said the Catholic Pope Benedict was involved.
The message was released on the fifth anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
Pope Benedict will reduce his activity at this week’s Good Friday procession by watching most of the service from a vantage point instead of walking around Rome’s ancient Colosseum, a spokesman said on Tuesday.
Rev. Federico Lombardi confirmed the change, reported earlier on Tuesday by the French religious news agency I-Media.
Lombardi said there were no worries about the health of the pope, who will turn 81 during his trip to the United States in April.
“It is reasonable that he would want to conserve his energy,” Lombardi said in response to a question.
Instead of walking around the Colosseum for all 14 of the “stations of the cross” as he did in previous years, the pope will watch most of the event from Rome’s nearby Palatine hill.
Benedict is expected to walk the procession only for the last three “stations”. The 14 stations commemorate the events between Christ being condemned to death and his burial.
