Pope Francis lauds Cardinal Martini
October 28, 2015
Pope Francis has written the preface to the first volume of the collected works of Cardinal Carlo Martini (1927-2012), the Jesuit who served as archbishop of Milan from 1980 to 2012.
Describing Cardinal Martini’s legacy as a “precious gift,” the Pope praised the prelate’s commitment to synodality, missionary dialogue, and Sacred Scripture.
Stating that Cardinal Martin’s “life, his works and his words have infused hope and sustained many persons on their journey,” Pope Francis noted that his texts were read by many during retreats, even by “many of us in Argentina.”
