Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Contemplative prayer is "fundamental" to Papal visit

From Fr. Stephanos comes word that the US Apostolic Nuncio (Pietro Sambi) has sent a letter addressed to contemplative religious communities (I assume that includes the Benedictines of Mary, whom I most eagerly await joining this June!) in which he urges them to prayer for the fruitfulness of the Holy Father's upcoming visit to the USA. È fantastico!

The letter concludes: I am deeply convinced that my request is fundamental to the real success of the pastoral journey of the Pope as well as to the spiritual renewal of our beloved Catholic Church in the United States.

Go to Fr. Stephanos' post for the rest!
