Pope lauds deceased Cardinal Martini's work for peace and justice

Catholic World News - August 30, 2013

Pope Francis paid tribute to the late Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini during an August 30 meeting with members of a foundation dedicated to the memory of the deceased Archbishop of Milan.

The Pope praised Cardinal Martini-- who was long a leader of Catholic liberals in Europe-- for his work for peace and justice, "nourished by the Word of God." He recalled his vivid memories of an address that the Italian cardinal, a fellow Jesuit, delivered at the 1974 general congregation of the Society of Jesus.

The members of the Fondazione Carlo Maria Martini had scheduled their meeting in Rome for the first anniversary of the cardinal's death, which will fall on August 31.
