The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

He also said the new cardinals have not come to be served but rather to serve others.

The Angelus coincided with the feast of the “Chair of St. Peter” and the pope explained that the “chair” is the place from which the bishop presides at ceremonies and teaches Catholics. This also is where the name “cathedral” comes from.

Benedict XVI
“The Chair of Peter is a sign of authority, but the authority of Christ, which is based in faith and love.”

Tomorrow the pope will meet with the families of the new cardinals. It will be the last meeting related to them, an event that has attracted thousands of people to Rome.
