Statement from Senator John Kerry on Pope Benedict XVI

Washington, D.C. - Senator John Kerry issued the following statement on the Vatican's announcement of Pope Benedict XVI:

"The election of a new pope is a great moment of hope, renewal and possibility for the Catholic church. Like all Catholics, Teresa and I pray for the Holy Father, extend our hopes for the Church, and hope that Pope Benedict XVI's pontificate will touch the world in the same way Pope John Paul II did, reaching out to all people everywhere to find common ground, and guiding the faithful in a time of challenge and change across the globe."
