CARD. GIANFRANCO RAVASI
President, Pontifical Council for Culture

"We begin these days with great excitement. They are days of solitude, silence, meditation,with all my brothers and friends here present. We come to show our affection, of our gratitude, and our admiration.”

Cardinal Ravasi is an active user of the social networking sites, especially Twitter. So he has decided to write posts that summarize the key messages of the day. In fact, it's the same message Benedict XVI will be hearing in Rome's Redemptoris Mater chapel.

Another way to keep up to date, is to actually listen to some of the reflections and meditations, Cardinal Ravasi will give on a daily basis. They will be uploaded, in Italian, on the Vatican Radio's website, every afternoon.
