Papal preacher opens Advent sermon series

Catholic World News - December 03, 2010

Father Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher of the pontifical household, delivered the first in a weekly series of Advent meditations on Friday, December 3. He preached on a text from St. John’s Gospel (16:33): “But be of good cheer; I have overcome the world!”

The Advent sermons are delivered on Fridays in the Redemptoris Mater chapel of the apostolic palace, with Pope Benedict XVI and the other members of the pontifical household in attendance. This year’s sermons are devoted to the theme of re-evangelizing a secular culture.
