Papal preacher: think about eternity

Catholic World News - December 10, 2010

In the 2nd weekly sermon of his Advent series, Father Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher to the pontifical household, argued that the world needs “a renewed faith in eternity.”

The papal preacher, who is dedicating this year’s Advent sermons to the Christian answers to secularization, said that the perspective of eternity is important to those who wish to place a proper value on the peaks and valleys of human life. He said that “we need such a renewed faith in order to give a new impetus to our journey toward holiness."
