It is the ten-year anniversary of the publication of Pope Benedict’s Encyclical Letter "Deus Caritas Est,” and the context of the conference with the theme "Love never fails” was studied
from February 25-26th.
As a postscript to this meeting, Pope Francis met with the participants on Friday. He noted that the first encyclical of his predecessor touches a theme that runs throughout the history of the Church: charity.
"The first Encyclical of Pope Benedict XVI concerns a theme that allows us to retrace the entire history of the Church, which is also a history of charity. It is a story of the love received from God, to be carried to the world: this charity received and given is the fulcrum of the history of the Church and of the history of each one of us.”
Before taking a photo with all the participants, the Pope expressed a desire: that every believer and every institution of the Church reveal that God loves mankind.
