What place does Christ have in modern society? Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher to the papal household, posed that question in a series of Advent and Lent meditations presented to Pope Benedict XVI. In REMEMBER JESUS CHRIST, which is based on these meditations, he explains that in order to bring people to Christ today, the church needs to proclaim, as simply and succinctly as the apostles did, that "Jesus Christ is Lord!" And the essential core of that proclamation is the passion and death of Jesus, because the cross of Christ is the supreme proof of God’s love for us. Scripture, personal testimonies, and allusions to works of art reinforce Cantalamessa’s powerful and prophetic message, leaving readers with hope and expectant faith in the future of Christianity in the modern world.
