Seminarians wait for Pope Benedict to arrive March 4.

Even though it's not easy to like every member of the Church, being part of Christ's body means accepting them all, Pope Benedict told seminarians.

During a March 4 visit to the Rome Diocese's seminary, the pope said God continues to call people to follow his Son.

The seminarians, once ordained, will have to realize that call in a parish where they will be called on "to accept, to support and to animate the whole parish and all the people — those who are nice, and those who are not so nice — who are part of this body."
