Pope Benedict on the Mendicant Orders

Monday, January 18, 2010

During his General Audience address last week Pope Benedict reflected on the example of the mendicant orders, the Franciscans and Dominicans, in renewing the spiritual and intellectual life of the medieval Church. He called on Christians today also to read "the signs of the times" and to find new and radical ways to spread the Good News. The full text of his address has been translated into English at ZENIT and can be found here.
