Vatican - Religion - Synod of Bishops

A swiss guard salutes Pope Benedict XVI at the end of the XI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops at the Vatican.The first synod of Pope Benedict's reign ended on Saturday, acknowledging Catholicism faced great difficulties from a severe shortage of priests but decided married priests were not the answer.The working sessions closed with 50 propositions and a message to the world from the more than 250 bishops. The synod's decisions have dashed the hopes of some liberal Catholics for movement on issues such as married priests, celibacy and the divorced faithful.
