"Today the concept of truth is viewed with suspicion, because truth is identified with violence. Over history there have, unfortunately, been episodes when people sought to defend the truth with violence. But they are two contrasting realities. Truth cannot be imposed with means other than itself! Truth can only come with its own light. Yet, we need truth. ... Without truth we are blind in the world, we have no path to follow. The great gift of Christ was that He enabled us to see the face of God".Pope Benedict xvi, February 24th, 2012
The Church is ecumenical, catholic, God-human, ageless, and it is therefore a blasphemy—an unpardonable blasphemy against Christ and against the Holy Ghost—to turn the Church into a national institution, to narrow her down to petty, transient, time-bound aspirations and ways of doing things. Her purpose is beyond nationality, ecumenical, all-embracing: to unite all men in Christ, all without exception to nation or race or social strata. - St Justin Popovitch

HAPPY NEW YEAR; Looking back on the Pope's Activity in 2010 and Much More
I apologize for covering up the lists of previous posts with large videos. Someone more skiled would be able to avoid this. If you want to explore any of the lists, simply click on one you can see, and the page you end up with will have lists uninterrupted by videos. I hope you like this selection of videos for the New Year. The first looks on the Pope's activity in 2010; and the last looks at his engagements in 2011. In between, there is a variety, all of them very good. All videos are from GLORIA TV.
