VATICAN CITY — The birth of Jesus causes joy because it gives us the certainty that God “works wonders in weakness,” Pope Benedict XVI said Jan. 2.

“The Nativity of the Lord once again illuminates the darkness that often surrounds our world and our hearts with his light, bringing hope and joy,” he said during his weekly general audience in the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall.

The Pope opened and closed his remarks with Pilate’s question to Christ at his trial: “Where do you come from?”

Pope Benedict answered that the Gospels show Christ’s “true origin” is from God the Father and that he “comes entirely from him.”

That Christ “by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,” is a...READ MORE

ROME — Bishop James Conley of Lincoln, Neb., said Americans nationwide can learn much from the Latino community on how to live their faith.

“They bring a strong sense of family, a great love of the Catholic faith, of the sacraments and of the blessed Virgin Mary,” said Bishop Conley.

“Those are all positives, and I think we Anglos can benefit from that because it’s almost instinctual for Hispanics,” he said last month shortly after the “Ecclesia in America conference in Rome.

“They’re the ones having children, working, looking for jobs, finding their place, and so we need to be right there with them,” said Bishop Conley, who was installed as the ninth bishop of Lincoln on Nov. 20.

VATICAN CITY — A new encyclical, a visit to Rio and possibly two consistories of new cardinals are just some of the highlights expected for Pope Benedict XVI this coming year.

Over the past few months, the Holy Father has been putting the finishing touches on his fourth encyclical, scheduled to be published during Lent. Dedicated to the subject of faith and published to coincide with the Year of Faith, the encyclical will be used by the Pope to offer encouragement to a world in crisis, Vatican sources say.

It will follow three other encyclicals during this pontificate: two on the other theological virtues of charity, Deus Caritas Est (2005), and hope, Spe Salvi (2007), and a “social...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — Presiding at the Mass celebrated in St. Peter’s Basilica on the occasion of the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, Pope Benedict XVI proposed Mary’s serenity as the source of interior peace and as the foundation for world peace.

In the first day of the year, in which the Church also commemorates the World Day of Peace — established by Pope Paul VI — the Holy Father said that Mary shows “the interior peace which we ought to have amid the sometimes tumultuous and confusing events of history, events whose meaning we often do not grasp and which disconcert us.”

Pope Benedict’s full homily follows:
