Archbishop Jose Gomez has a piece in the latest Tidings, the newspaper of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, focusing on Benedict's new book. This is fantastic stuff! Would that all Catholic bishops would write to their faithful about the need to follow Benedict's example of Scripture study!
Pope Benedict's attempt to implement the Catholic biblical renewal envisioned by the Second Vatican Council will be alive and well in L.A. with a archbishop like this.
I've put in bold some of my favorite parts, but I must admit, I could have put almost the whole thing in bold!
I am starting to read Pope Benedict XVI's new book, "Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week: From the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection" (Ignatius Press, $25).
This is the second volume of our Holy Father's proposed trilogy on the life and message of Jesus. It is a scholarly work that is beautifully written, deeply spiritual, and inspires meditation and prayer.
