Bishop Bevard Meets with Pope Benedict XVI

His Excellency, Bishop Herbert Bevard, and bishops of dioceses from Washington DC to Florida met with the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, at the Vatican on January 16-21.
Pope Pius X stated in the Decree for the Consistorial Congregation in 1909 that a bishop needs to report to the Holy See an account of the state of his diocese once every five years, starting in 1911. The ad limina visits included individual and group meetings with the pope, encounters with Vatican officials and prayers at the tomb of St. Peter.
