CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher of the pontifical household, delivered the first Lenten Sermon on January 26, beginning a weekly series on the theme: “Who do you say that I am?” In the first Friday sermon (full text), the Capuchin preacher remarked on the “sober drunkenness” of the apostles—who were thought by cynics to be drunk on wine when they were filled with the Holy Spirit.
