‘Pacis Nuntius,’ the 1964 apostolic letter by which Blessed Paul VI declared St. Benedict a patron of Europe, displayed at Montecassino abbey.


MONTECASSINO, Italy — The European Union could be significant and helpful in solving crises around the world, but its common effort should lie in its Christians roots which are somewhat forgotten, Cardinal Pietro Parolin said on Friday.

The event coincided with the appointment of a new abbot for the community, and its reorganization, and commemorated the 50th anniversary of Blessed Paul VI’s visit to the first community of the Order of St. Benedict.
