"Pope Seeks Renunciation of Hatred on 9/11"

CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy - Pope Benedict XVI marked the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks Sunday, calling for a global renunciation of hatred and for men and women to build a world of justice and peace.

Benedict noted the fourth anniversary of the attacks during his traditional Sunday greeting to the tourists and faithful gathered in the courtyard of the papal summer palace at Castel Gandolfo, in the Alban hills south of Rome.

"Today, 11 September, we remember the victims of terrorist violence throughout the world," Benedict said in English. "May God inspire men and women of goodwill everywhere to renounce hatred and to build a world of justice, solidarity and peace."
