(Zenit.org)- The Russian Orthodox Church has published a book in Italian and Russian with texts from Benedict XVI on the culture of Europe.
This is the first time the Moscow Patriarchate is publishing a compilation of texts from a Pope. It is titled “Europe, Spiritual Homeland,” and includes addresses by Joseph Ratzinger during the course of more than a decade.
The presentation of the book will take place Wednesday in Rome during a round table on “The Role of the Churches in the Cultural Integration of Europe.”
The volume will be introduced by the chairman of the Department of External Affairs of the Moscow Patriarchate, Archbishop Hilarion Alfeyev. (Click for Full Article)
“This book is an event of unprecedented historic scope in the millennial history of Catholics and Russian Orthodox,” explained the editor of the book, Pierluca Azzaro. “But before and above all, it is a great testimony of love of Christ and between Christians. From this love springs — should spring — European culture in all its manifold expressions: a living culture, imbued with an authentically creative moral energy, all together geared to the building of a good future for all.”
