Church - 2013
In his homily for the Mass for the Possession of the Chair of the Bishop of Rome on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 2013, Pope Francis reminds us of God's mercy. Of our need for a patient and merciful Father.
In his address to ecclesial movements on the Pentecost vigil, Pope Francis answers questions concerning faith, evangelization, and poverty. He says, "there must be no question of a closed Church, but rather a Church which is ready to step outside..."
In this homily on the solemnity of Saint Joseph, Pope Francis reminds us of our call to be protectors of our faith, protectors of truth. "Let us protect with love all that God has given us!"
In his Ash Wednesday homily, Pope Benedict XVI reminds us of God's mercy and emphasizes our capacity to return to Him "with all your heart."
In this General Audience by Pope Benedict XVI he speaks of his decision to renounce the ministry of Pope and to retire. He then speaks of Lent and Christ's temptations in the wilderness. We all have a choice "...between human power and love of the Cross".
A witness to Pope Francis' longest speech yet and his encouragement to not withdraw into ourselves, but rather to "...become engaged in the New Evangelization, through a simple return to Jesus Christ..."
It was in 1993 when Fr. Giussani sent him around the world for the first time. Fr. Ambrogio Pisoni, visitor for the CL communities in the East, tells us about his 20 years of traveling: “What Christ works is more powerful than any cultural condition.”
The humility of the beginning and the ending of Pope Benedict XVI's pontificate indicate the true content of his steps. Theologian Javier Prades looks back with us on these past eight years.
