Teach the faith and Christian morality in this age of “of worrying disorientation,” says Pope
Benedict XVI tells Brazil’s 400 bishops what are the priorities of their ministry. Starting with the defence of marriage and family which are under attack by some laws, the Church is called to make a missionary effort, promote pastoral initiatives in favour of the poor and the disinherited and social initiatives respectful of the Church’s social doctrine.

Pope: Church has “irresistible missionary power”, no proselytism
Celebrating Mass to mark the opening of the Fifth General Conference of the Latin American and Caribbean Bishops' Conferences, Benedict XVI restated the role played by faith in the continent. Looking to the heavenly Jerusalem does not mean distancing oneself from the realities in the world. The family is at the heart of the mission of the Church.

Pope tells priests to always have a missionary fervour in their hearts
As he recites the Rosary with priests, men and women religious, seminarians and deacons, Benedict XVI asserts that the witness of a well lived priestly life brings nobility to the Church, calls for admiration among the faithful, is a source of blessing for the community, is the best way to promote vocations, and is the most authentic way to invite other young people to respond affirmatively to the Lord’s calling. He affectionately greets all the families around the world.

WYD: for pope, Christians should be hopeful, surprised by God, and live in joy
Pope Francis holds Mass at the Marian shrine of Aparecida. "When the Church looks for Jesus, she always knocks at his Mother's door and asks, 'Show us Jesus'. It is from Mary that the Church learns true discipleship. That is why the Church always goes out on mission in the footsteps of Mary."
