Pope guarantees the authentic faith that comes from above, Spanish cardinal says

.- The Archbishop of Toledo, Cardinal Antonio Canizares Llovera, said this week that the authentic faith Catholics should live out “comes from on high solely through divine revelation” and is “guaranteed by the successor of Peter.”

During his homily for the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul, the cardinal explained that the faith of Catholics should not be based on the “doctrines, teachings or theories that people in the world have, including some theologians.”

The faith, he said, “comes from on high solely through divine revelation and is guaranteed by the successor of Peter, so that we can live more deeply the mystery of unity” and fearlessly “proclaim hope for all mankind.”

He said his prayers were that Catholics would be “strengthened by the faith, that faith that can only be lived out with Peter, in unbreakable unity with the successors of Peter and the Apostles.”

The cardinal also encouraged Catholics to live the Pauline Year centered in Christ and proclaim the Gospel “to all people,” to revive the “missionary sense and the sense of the Church.”

The Pauline Year should be one of “prayer for the Holy Father, that his intentions and desires may be fulfilled, which are always of mercy, grace, peace and reconciliation for the whole world, in order to show that God, who is love, is with us, and that we have discovered Him in his human face, which is that of His Son Jesus Christ, come in the flesh through the work of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.”
