Catholic News Agency reports that at Mass on Sunday at the end of the bishops' synod on the new evangelization, the Pope reflected on the need for faith in overcoming spiritual blindness and also appealed on behalf of the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Pope Benedict XVI made his remarks at the close of the Oct. 7-28 synod on the new evangelization in Rome, which gathered bishops from the world to discuss the transmission of the Christian faith in the modern world.

Synod fathers have released a document of 58 propositions about the new evangelization. Pope Benedict will review the findings of the synod and will write a post-synodal apostolic exhortation, after considering their propositions.
