As the Holy Father says, "It is urgently necessary in these forty days to listen anew to the gospel, the word of the Lord, the word of truth." Pope Benedict is an inspiring and insightful guide who can lead us into a deeper understanding of the gospel and the truths of our faith so that we become more faithful disciples of Christ.
