Now is your chance to help to bring his successor to our country. Quebec City holds 49th International Eucharistic Congress in June 2008. We are asking Our Blessed Father Benedict XVI to visit us.
As Suzanne of the Facebook group Bring the pope to Quebec City explains:
A very serious effort to bring the pope to Quebec City has been launched by former Quebec cabinet minister Marc Bellemare (now leader of a municipal party, Vision Quebec).
The pope's presence in Canada would obviously be an opportunity for him to speak out for the culture of life and the rights of unborn children.
Most of North America is enmeshed in the culture of death, but in Quebec it's especially bad. We need a strong voice to defend the unborn.
So please, sign the petition
The petition is in French but don't worry:
One small hitch: the petition I have is in French, but no big deal.
