Pope: Love of Christ in celibacy, source of communion and mission for families
Benedict XVI, on a pastoral visit to Milan, meets priests, deacons and consecrated in the Cathedral, within the context of the VII World Meeting of Families. Among the saints "who have devoted their energies to the service of the Gospel" he mentions two PIME missionaries.

Pope greets Milan, "a crossroads of peoples and cultures"
Benedict XVI starts a pastoral visit to the city that is hosting the Meeting of Families. For the pope, the city's character includes positive secularism and a strong Catholic background combined with efficiency and generosity. In his address, he urged people to care for the poor and quake victims, in line with the city's saints: Ambrose, Charles Borromeo, Pius XI, Paul VI, and Gianna Beretta Molla. He entrusted the city into the care of the 'Madonnina'. Tonight, the pontiff will attend a concert at La Scala.

Letter of Benedict XVI for the preparation of the VII World Meeting of Families to be held in Italy, in Milan from May 30 to June 3, 2012.

Encyclical: the person must be at the heart of economics
‘Caritas in Veritate’ reiterates the key notion of the Church’s social doctrine in a globalised world. It urges everyone to rediscover the notions of responsibility and merit which are found in each of us, in the family, the firm, the local and national community, which in turn are more than a collection of nameless atoms with neither past nor present. As ‘actus personae’ economic activities must have a specific and concrete meaning in relation to a body, a plural one, wherever necessary, but one that is united internally and close-knit. The Encyclical issues a warning against the dangers of technological absolutism.
