Pope prays at Ground Zero

Pope Benedict XVI has visited Ground Zero in New York, the scene of the 11 September 2001 attacks on Twin Towers, at the end of a six-day tour of the US.

He greeted survivors, fire and police workers, and relatives of some of the 2,749 people who died there. He also offered prayers for rescuers, victims, as well as “those whose hearts and minds are consumed with hatred”.

The Pope will later celebrate Mass at New York’s Yankees stadium before flying home. It will be the conclusion to what observers say has been a successful trip.

They should think seriously of building a cathedral there if anything else
