Pope urges priests to be consistent with what they preach

Benedict XVI“In the tumult of the Reformation, he took part in many civic and theological disputes. He published devotional literature as well as catechisms popular for their Biblically-inspired responses.” St. Peter Canisius lived during the sixteenth century, a period full of religious conflicts that helped solidify the deep spiritual roots of Christianity. Benedict XVI“Even in his later years in Fribourg, Switzerland, he remained extremely active, dedicating himself to writing and preaching.”Among those in attendance, was a group of 60 bishops who participated in a conference sponsored by the Focolare movement. Benedict XVI“I am pleased that you are having this opportunity to exchange ecclesial experiences from various parts of the world, and I trust that these days of prayer and reflection may help to bring abundant fruits for your communities.”The Pope noted that a large group of French youth was in the crowd and invited them to World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid.
