Pope to Brazilian bishops: teach the truth boldly

Catholic World News - June 21, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI encouraged a group of Brazilian bishops to “teach the truth boldly and authentically,” as he spoke at the conclusion of their ad limina visit on June 18.

The Pope laid heavy stress on promoting the Sunday liturgy, which provides the best opportunity for “prayer in the human city—often turbulent, noisy, and forgetful of God.” He also asked the Brazilian bishops to be attentive to their duty to govern the local Church, adding that a bishop’s effectiveness as a governor “rests on a moral authority bestowed by his life of holiness.”
