Salami o-tikum

Pope Benedict arrives in Lebanon as 'pilgrim of peace'
This Catholic News Agency story tells of Pope Benedict XVI's arrival in the Middle East as he begins a three-day apostolic visit to Lebanon.

"Dear friends, I have come to Lebanon as a pilgrim of peace, as a friend of God and as a friend of men. Christ says, 'Salami o-tikum,' 'My peace I give to you,'" said the Pope at the official welcoming ceremony at Beirut's Rafik Hariri Airport Sept. 14.

The Pope has travelled to the Middle East to sign his Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation for the Middle entitled "Ecclesia in Medio Oriente" which, he said, is "addressed to everyone" as "a roadmap for the years to come."
