Pope Benedict XVI, framed by a Christmas tree, delivers his blessing from his studio window overlooking St. Peter's Square following an Epiphany Mass at the Vatican on Thursday, Jan. 6, 2011. Benedict XVI is stunned by the wave of violence and intolerance toward Christians around the world, Italy's top churchman said Thursday at Epiphany services. "Together with the Holy Father, Benedict XVI, we are stunned in the face of religious intolerance and so much violence, and we are asking ourselves, in sorrow: Why?'' said Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, president of Italy's bishops conference in an Epiphany homily in Genoa. Benedict told pilgrims and tourists he was offering heartfelt greeting and wishes to "the brothers and sisters of the Eastern churches who tomorrow will celebrate Holy Christmas.''
