CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis opened the 95th judicial year of the Tribunal of Vatican City State on March 2 and stated that “the task of judging requires the virtues of fortitude and courage, without which wisdom risks remaining sterile.”

Msgr. Filippo Ciampanelli, an aide, read aloud the Pope’s address, in which the Pontiff said that “doing justice is always an act of charity, an opportunity for fraternal correction aimed at helping the other recognize his mistake.”

“The strength of institutions and firmness in the administration of justice are demonstrated by the serenity of judgment, the independence, and impartiality of those called upon, at various stages of the process, to judge,” the Pope added.
