Video: Why the pope is in Milan this weekend

Pope Benedict XVI arrived in Milan late this afternoon for the World Meeting of Families, where he plans to show his deep concern for bolstering the family during troubled times.

In this video from our Rome bureau, correspondent Carol Glatz, who is covering the pope in Milan, explains why the pope sees the family as a basic building block of society, talks about some of the global challenges facing the family, and shares the pope’s vision for the family as a crucial part of the “new evangelization.”

Did you know that you also can gain special indulgences this weekend in connection with the meeting? Details on that are here.
