Pope Benedict XVI visits Jordan: May 8-11, 2009
 
Papal visit ‘primarily spiritual’

The pontiff confirmed his May 8-15 visit to Jordan and the Holy Land during the end of his customary Sunday Angelus prayer through a live TV broadcast from the Vatican on Sunday.

. . . The visit to Jordan will be His Holiness' 12th international visit and the first to an Arab country since he became Pope in April 2005.

. . . Bishop Selim Sayegh, the Latin Patriarchal Vicar for Jordan, noted that the pilgrimage to Jordan is an assent to the invitation extended by His Majesty King Abdullah. He pointed out Jordan's biblical significance as a "blessed and holy land".

"The invitation from His Majesty was delivered personally to Pope Benedict XVI by Her Majesty Queen Rania during her private audience with His Holiness in 2007," Jordan Times
