Second address at the UN - to the ordinary workers

Pope Benedict had a second address at the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York - this time to the workers.

I didn't realize he would have two addresses there. He received a long standing ovation following this talk. These were the "little people" - the ordinary workers there and I found it touching that he would talk to them and not limit his attention to the leaders. These are the folks in the trenches. When you really think about it, how many of these people got into this line of business because they wanted to make a difference? Benedict brings us all back to basics in so many ways.
