Bible to be center of Lenten preaching at the Vatican

.- On Friday, February 22, in the Redemptoris Mater Chapel, in the presence Pope Benedict XVI, the preacher of the Papal Household, Father Raniero Cantalamessa, OFM Cap, will begin the traditional Lenten preaching, which will focus on the Word of God, in tune with the upcoming Synod of Bishops.  The general theme of the preaching will be “The Word of God is Living and Efficacious”—a quote from the Letter to the Hebrews.

The Pontifical Household said the sermons will be an invitation to reflect on the proclamation of the Gospel in the life of Christ and in the mission of the Church, on the Word of God as means of personal sanctification and on the relationship between the Spirit and the Word.

The members of the Roman Curia are all invited to attend the sermons, which will take place February 22-29 and March 7-14.
