"Let us build a World of Peace", who said this on the election of the 47 year old Mr Barack Obama as the 44th President of the USA (This is an answer to one of my old questions on the same topic which was not correctly answered)?
The Pope said this in a telegram to Barack Obama, who won Tuesday's presidential election. The papal telegram was sent through the U.S. ambassador to the Holy See, Mary Ann Glendon.
The Holy Father promises Obama his prayers so that God assists him in his "weighty responsibilities at the service of the nation and the international community."
The Italian-language message expresses the Pontiff's wish that the abundant blessings of the Lord "support you and the people of the United States in your efforts, together with all men and women of good will, to build a world of peace, solidarity and justice."
