VATICAN CITY — Franciscan Father Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher to the papal household, touched on the biblical meaning of the word "peace" — both as a gift from God and a longing of the human heart — in his first Advent meditation to Pope Francis on Dec. 5.

Peace in the biblical meaning is much, much more profound than the peace in political spheres, Father Cantalamessa told CNA.

He said that his reflections will go beyond the external sense of peace and into the “peace of God: as a gift of God, as a duty, as a task to accomplish and peace as inner peace, peace of the heart.”

As preacher to the papal household, Father Cantalamessa gives a meditation to the Pope, cardinals and...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis asked that, during Advent, the faithful prepare for the Lord’s coming by being open to God’s consolation, which we must receive personally before giving to others.

“It is he who brings us to the source of every true consolation, that is, to the Father. And this is conversion. Please, let yourselves be consoled by the Lord. Let yourselves be consoled by the Lord,” the Pope told those present in St. Peter’s Square for his Dec. 7 Angelus address.

He referred to the day’s first reading, taken from the Book of Isaiah, in which the prophet offers the people a message of mercy, consolation and hope.

When Isaiah tells the people, “Comfort, give comfort to my people,...READ MORE

– britttanica.com

STONYHURST, England — In 1581, St. Edmund Campion, an English Jesuit,  was convicted of treason and subjected to a brutal death sentence, yet his enduring power to inspire courage under fire affirms the fruitful legacy of Catholic martyrs, said Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore.

Archbishop Lori celebrated the courageous example of the English convert and martyr during a “Campion Day” Mass at Stonyhurst College, a British Jesuit school, during a visit this week to the United Kingdom.

St. Edmund Campion, “without exaggeration, was one of the greatest heroes in the history of the Church,” said the Baltimore archbishop, who noted that the saint turned his back on a brilliant career and...READ MORE

Author, Cardinals Differ Over Claim of Conclave Campaigning (2696)

Austin Ivereigh’s new book The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope states that four cardinals promoted Pope Francis’ candidacy.

12/05/2014 Comments (7)

VATICAN CITY — The 2013 papal conclave that elected Pope Francis is news again, now that four cardinals have denied a new book’s claim that they campaigned for Pope Francis to be elected — though the book’s author has clarified the Pope himself was not a part of their supposed campaign.

The London-based Catholic journalist Austen Ivereigh, in his new book The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope, contends that a group of cardinals on what he bills as “Team Bergoglio” worked during the last conclave to promote the election of Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires as pope.

According to Ivereigh, Cardinals Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, Walter Kasper, Gottfried...READ MORE
