Pope tells Maltese inmates: Christians always have 'inner freedom'
May 20, 2010
In a message to prison inmates in Malta, Pope Benedict XVI wrote of the "inner freedom" that Christians possess regardless of their circumstances. The Pope's message, made public by the Vatican on May 20, reminded the inmates that St. Paul was a prisoner when he arrived on Malta. He quoted the words of the Apostle, that "neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
