October 2013 (St Francis' day).
on 4 October 2013
When I was younger I tried to read the documents of the Second Vatican Council, but the language was so heavy that I gave up almost before starting. They seemed to be trying to comunicate "mind to mind" - all very well for the clergy, trained for this kind of thing.
Now, with a new Pope who is so highly acclaimed I decided to try again to find "food for faith" in this new encyclical letter. I have found that it speaks to me "eye to eye, heart to heart". And I can understand it!
I hope to persuade our parish priests to develop an adult course of catechesis around it, for I am sure that Pope Francis's approach can help us reconnect the everyday world we live in to our faith in Christ.
And isn't that the reason for which encyclical lettters are written?
I would suggest this work for personal and group meditation among Christians of all denominations.
Really! It's wonderful!!
