What place does Christ have in modern society? Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher to the papal household, asked 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 argues that the church must become "fishers" of men before becoming "shepherds" of men. It must proclaim, as the apostles did, that "Jesus Christ is Lord!" And the essential core of that proclamation is the passion and death of Jesus, because God is love, and the cross of Christ is supreme proof of that love. 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.
