Papal preacher focuses on Christian duty to evangelize
December 02, 2011
Father Raniero Cantalamessa, the official preacher to the pontifical household, delivered the first in a series of Advent sermons on December 2, with Pope Benedict XVI among those in attendance.
The Capuchin preacher focused his attention on the need to spread the Good News of the Gospel. His Advent series is dedicated this year to evangelization, putting the calls for a “new evangelization” in the context of previous periods of notable missionary activity within the Church.
The Advent sermons are delivered on Fridays in the Redemptoris Mater chapel of the apostolic palace.
