God Speaks of His Love Through Benedict

GOD IS LOVE AND BENEDICT HAS BEEN CHOSEN TO WRITE IT IN DEUS CARITAS EST. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL ENCYCLICAL AND ALL THE FAITHFUL SHOULD SPEND SOME TIME TO READ IT.



The Holy Father signs his first encyclical. I wonder if he gave it to the Cardinal as his autographed copy.













The Holy Father at Vespers talking about his encyclical.
The Curia announces to the International Press Pope Benedict's first encyclical.

Pope Benedict XIV presents his encylical. Notice how Heaven blesses and rejoices!

Oh yes Danny, I agree! What a blessing to have the Pope talk about God's Love during these times of sadness, pain and loss of faith.

Carmel, isn't that painting beautiful? It kind of gives us a hint of the infallibility of the Pope.

"God is love" -

How powerful are those three words! They happen to be my favorite part of the entire Gospel. When someone asks what my favorite verse is, I quote those three words. So, I was overwhelmed with joy when I heard of the title of the encyclical.

I haven't been able to read too much yet, but what I have read is great. I'm trying to listen to the mp3 audio version and follow along.
