Celebacy for Priest

This reading is in support of the St Thomas mission to support the Year of Faith and the Holy Father’s call for mission.

The man who called us to this renewal of faith, has this past week become our Roman pontiff emeritus or pope emeritus. The word “emeritus” comes from Latin. It’s an adjective that means “retired” but it is also used to honor the position once held by the retired person.

The most common usage is with professors who are still professors even if they’re not teaching any more. However, presidents, prime ministers and bishops also use the title.

The liturgy as a tool

This reading is in support of the St Thomas mission to support the Year of Faith and the Holy Father’s call for mission.

Our Pope Benedict outlined in his call for mission about the strength of the liturgy as a tool. These tools allow us to strengthen our faith. The Mass is more than an obligation and the ceremony more than old traditions.
