Cathecism of the Catholic Church #1 (1 – 200)

“The Catechism”

The servant of the servants of God as memories remain
To the honorable brothers the Cardinals, the Archbishop and Bishops, priests and deacons, and all members of God’s people.

Vatican Council II, which opened thirty years ago by my predecessor, the late John XXIII, has the objective and the desire to explain apostolic and pastoral mission of the Church, making truth of the Gospel shine and thus guide all mankind to seek and receive the love of Christ which surpasses all knowledge (cf. Eph 3:19). Read the rest of this entry »

Pope calls UK back to Christian roots in light of ‘more aggressive’ secularism

Edinburgh, United Kingdom, Sep 16, 2010 / 07:42 am (CNA/EWTN News).-   Benedict XVI has called the UK to draw from it’s “Christian foundation” as it addresses the challenges of the modern day. He hoped that society would continue to respect the traditional values and cultural expressions which are no longer valued or tolerated by “more aggressive forms of secularism.”

The Pope arrived to the Queen’s Edinburgh residence, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, to festive traditional bagpipe music on the first morning of his UK visit. In his first official address of the four-day tour, the Holy Father spoke to members of the monarchy and the Scottish parliament, and even briefly to British media, about working for the good of society.
