(Zenit) Christians should be a sign and instrument of the compassion and mercy of Christ, Benedict XVI says.

The Pope affirmed this today at a Mass he celebrated in the port city of Brindisi in Italy’s southeastern region of Apulia.

Orthodox Metropolitan Gennadios of Italy was among those who participated in the Eucharist in this city that is a symbol of the meeting between East and West. The Holy Father greeted him, recalling “the ecumenical vocation proper to the Church of Brindisi.”

In his homily, Benedict XVI dealt with the meaning of Christian compassion and related it to the city of Brindisi, which since the 1990s, has faced an often-desperate immigration crisis.
