Pope Advises Against Road Rage

CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy, AUG. 18, 2008 ( Benedict XVI is encouraging Christians to make an examination of consciences regarding their conduct behind the wheel.

The Pope spoke of traffic accidents Sunday in his reflection before praying the midday Angelus with crowds who had gathered at the papal summer residence at Castel Gandolfo, south of Rome.

He called numerous driving accidents "another prayer intention."

"Human life is too precious and it is too unworthy of man to meet death or become an invalid due to causes that could mostly be avoided," the Holy Father said. "There is certainly a need for a greater sense of responsibility, above all by drivers, as accidents are often caused by excessive speed and imprudent conduct."
Thank you for stating the obvious, Your Holiness.
