Pope's Angelus: Pray for the new cardinals

2012-11-26

BENEDICT XVI
"I invite everyone to pray for the six new cardinals created yesterday. May the Holy Spirit strengthen their faith and charity and fill them with spiritual gifts, so they may live with responsibility and dedication to Christ and His Kingdom.”

The Pope also emphasized the universal reach of the Church, since the six new cardinals are non-Europeans.

BENEDICT XVI
"These new members of the College of Cardinals represent very well,  the universal dimension of the Church. They are pastors in the churches of Lebanon, India, Nigeria, Colombia, the Philippines and one of them has long served the Holy See.”

With thousands of people gathered in St. Peter's Square, the Pope called on them to welcome God into their lives.

BENEDICT XVI
"On  the Solemnity of Christ the King, the Church invites us to contemplate the Lordship of the Risen Saviour and to pray for the coming of His Kingdom. May Christ’s peace always reign in your hearts!”

The Solemnity of Christ the King is celebrated on the last Sunday before the beginning of Advent, when one prepares for the coming of Christ on Christmas.
