Pope eulogizes Cardinal Mayer

Catholic World News - May 03, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI praised the late Cardinal Paul Augustin Mayer for his deep faith and his lifetime of service to the Church, as he delivered the eulogy at the German cardinal's funeral in the Vatican basilica on May 3. "In a time such as our own, in which fear of death leads many people to despair and to the search for illusory consolations, Christians stand our for the fact that they place their security in God, in a Love so great as to be able to renew the whole world," the Pope said.

Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the dean of the College of Cardinals, presided at the funeral for Cardinal Mayer, who had been the oldest member of that College.
