The Pope Walks Through the Streets of Rome to St. Sabina - Perspectives Daily

February 14, 2018
Earlier today at the Pope’s weekly general audience taking place in St. Peter’s Square, the Holy Father continued his catechesis on the Mass.
“Hearing the Word of God, with the explanation in the homily that follows, is a right” the Pope said. “Everyone who goes to Mass, has the right to receive the Word of God, read well, proclaimed well, and then explained well, in the homily. It’s a right!”
The Pope then, reflected on the words of Jesus: “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you will and it shall be done for you.”
Also from Rome today, the Pope led the annual Ash-Wednesday ceremonies with a traditional procession that started at the Basilica of St. Anselm, through the streets of Rome and ended at the nearby St. Sabina marking the beginning Lent, the 40 days of preparation for Holy Week. Here now are some highlights from that event.
Finally tonight, now that the lenten season is officially upon us, it's the perfect time to reflect on the resurrection narratives. Our very own Fr. Thomas Rosica has just released a new book, a perfect guide to further explain the Resurrection of Jesus, called: “Stay With Us, Encounters with the Risen Lord.”
The book is now available and, you get your copy mailed directly to you, at our online store HERE
That is all that we have time for today. Join us again tomorrow, when I bring you more news and stories, from the Perspectives, of a Catholic Lens.
