Product Description

As Preacher to the Papal Household, Capuchin Father Raniero Cantalamessa has given an annual sermon at the Good Friday liturgy in St. Peter's Basilica for more than 40 years. Pope John Paul II presided from 1980 to 2005, Pope Benedict XVI from 2006 to 2012, and Pope Francis from 2013 to 2022, all of whom were present when he presented his reflections.

As in St. John's Gospel and the early Church, Good Friday commemorates both the hour of Christ's death and the moment when he was exalted and triumphed over sin and suffering. It is a day of sadness but also a day of great joy. In it, the entire Paschal Mystery is remembered.

These perceptive and compelling sermons serve as a priceless tool for a New Evangelization in "Spirit and power" in addition to illuminating the mystery of the Lord's Passion. Cardinal Cantalamessa considers the cross of Christ in the context of our contemporary world as well as the contemporary world in the context of the cross of Christ.
