Pope Francis welcomed the administration council for the Carlo Maria Martini foundation, on the day of he passed away one year ago. During the audience, the Pope highlighted the spiritual paternity that Cardinal Martini had on the Church.   

POPE FRANCIS
"It has been a spiritual paternity for all the Church. Even at the 'ends of the world,' we read his works. We would do spiritual exercises with his texts, and he gave us life, he helped our spiritual lives.” 

The foundation aims to keep alive the spirit that characterized the life and works of this Turin cardinal. They will create an archive that includes all of his writings and speeches. They will also continue his work in the field of inter-religious dialogue. As part of that, they've created bible groups for Christians and Jews. Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini was an expert on Bible studies and the New Testament. He also had a good reputation among clerical and cultural circles.
