Pope tells lawyers: be guided by truth
January 18, 2012
At the conclusion of his regular weekly public audience on January 18, Pope Benedict XVI reminded a group of lawyers that they have a moral obligation to serve the truth.
As usual, as he closed his midday audience, the Pope greeted groups that were in attendance, including in this case the members of the Rome Lawyers' Guild. He exhorted them to do their work "in faithfulness to the truth," since the search for truth "is a fundamental principle of justice."
