What place does Christ have in our 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 succintly 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. About the author: Fr. Ranierio Cantalamessa was born in Italy in 1934 and was ordained a Capuchin Franciscan priest in 1958. He taught at the Catholic University of Milan until 1979. In 1980 he was appointed as preacher to the papal household by Pope John Paul II. He still serves in that capacity, preaching a weekly sermon during both Lent and Advent in the presence of Pope Benedict XVI. He is a frequent and popular speaker at international conferences and ecumenical conferences and rallies.
