Pope celebrates Mass for cardinals and bishops who passed away this year

Benedict XVI

"The Cardinal Peter Seiichi Shirayanagi, Cahal Brendan Daly, Armand Gaétan Razafindratandra, Thomas Spidlik, Paul Augustin Mayer, Luigi Poggi, and also many archbishops and bishops."

The Pope spoke about the love of Jesus. He said that thanks to his sacrifice, the cross, which was a sign of "conviction" and "failure" became "life" and "salvation." According to the Pope, it shows the love of God towards man.

Benedict XVI

"By faith in the abundant love donated by Jesus Christ, we know that the smallest gesture of

love is greater than the maximum destructive power and it can transform the world."

The Pope said that God manifests his power through mercy and forgiveness, not by punishment. He also noted that Jesus came “to save and not condemn”.
