Pope Benedict XVI held the hands of the parents of 4-year-old Madeleine McCann on Wednesday, blessing them and a photo of the little girl who went missing while vacationing with her family in Portugal in early May. The pope spoke a few words with the parents, each dressed in dark suits, as he greeted dignitaries seated in the front row during his weekly general audience in St. Peter's Square. "He was very kind, very sincere," Kate McCann told a news conference. She said Benedict assured that he would "continue to pray for Madeleine's safe return."
