.- Cardinal Camillo Ruini, Vicar General of the Diocese of Rome, said this week the men who represent the Church, especially the Holy Father, “are profoundly in tune” with the Spirit of God.

The Italian cardinal says he has felt this way “since I was a child, at my parish in Sassuolo, and later as a student in Rome at the Gregorian University—a phase in which I absorbed this profound conviction that has guided my whole life and has been very important, I believe, for my work as Cardinal vicar [of the Rome Diocese], as the vicar of the Pope.”

In an interview with Vatican Radio about his two books on John Paul II and Benedict XVI, Cardinal Ruini said he was convinced that the Holy Spirit has worked through the two Popes, “who are the apex” of the Church.  “Therefore, I have been able to serve these two Popes with all my heart, with a profound conviction that this has come from my roots.”

For his part, the Rector of the Pontifical Lateran University, Bishop Rino Fisichella, said the Pope “always carries with him the great mission that Jesus has entrusted. It is the mission with which he has been entrusted, which is to confirm the brothers in the faith and be the sign of unity for all.”

He noted that one of the principal characteristics of the Pontificate of Benedict XVI is his ability to communicate difficult concepts in simple terms that everyone can understand.  “This means that in him we find not only a pastor and a guide, but also an intelligent pastor who knows who to translate and give strength to the most difficult subject matter of our faith,” Msgr. Fisichella said.
