A Letter from Papa

Here is a link to the new Papal exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis. This new letter on the Eucharistic sacrifice is deeply rooted in Scripture and the Fathers of the Church.

Take time to read it, and if you can’t read the whole thing the Queen of Catholic bloggers (Amy Welborn) has posted excellent excerpts. Roving Medievalist has been reading it too, and posts a few nuggets.

Fr Tim Finigan will be pleased to see that the Holy Father has been reading his blog…note six says, “I am referring here to the need for a hermeneutic of continuity also with regard to the correct interpretation of the liturgical development.” Now where have I heard those words before?

I’d really love some of the non-Catholics out there to read it and let us know what you like about it. I can probably predict what you don’t like…:-)
