Vatican City, Feb 17, 2004 / 22:00 pm
Pope John Paul II called on the world this morning to summarize all things in Christ in order to fulfill God’s plan for humanity.
During this Wednesday’s general audience, which took place in the Paul VI Hall, the Pope spoke about the canticle, “God the Savior,” which opens the Letter to the Ephesians and is recited on Mondays in the Liturgy of the Hours.
John Paul II said, “In his infinite goodness God planned before the creation of the world to bring all things into one through his beloved Son.”
“The supremacy of Christ extends, therefore, to the world as well as to that more specific horizon which is the Church. Christ fulfills the function of ‘fullness’,” he added.
