Council’s Work Continues

The Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization celebrated the 25th anniversary of the release of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Pope Francis spoke at the end of the conference. Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn of Vienna, one of the principal writers of the Catechism, gave a masterful talk on its history and creation, reminding all present just how much it is a work of the Second Vatican Council and our last two popes, St. John Paul II and its editor, Pope Benedict XVI (Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger).
