The Holy Father Today

At his Wednesday General Audience this morning (waaaay early this morning for us who are 6 hours behind Rome time), Pope Benedict continued the theme he began last May of reflections on each of the Apostles. English translations of the Italian addresses can be found at the Zenit News Service website. As we approach the Feast of Sts. Simon and Jude this Saturday, it might make good spiritual reading that day. When you get to the website, click on the link for "Wednesday's Audience."

His address this morning was on St. Paul, and included this quote right smack-dab in the middle of it:
"What matters is to put Jesus Christ at the center of our lives, so that our identity is characterized essentially by the encounter, by communion with Christ and his word. In his light, every other value must be recovered and purified of possible dross."
