Pope Benedict XVI in America

The Pope Showed America the Face of Christ
The heart and the person. Legality and justice. Religious freedom and the role of the Church. On the Pontiff’s return from the United States, we asked Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, the Holy See’s “Foreign Minister,” to provide an assessment of the visit. He accepted, explaining why the Successor of Peter “embodies the message that he brings: Christ is our hope”

By visiting the United Nations, the Holy Father continued a tradition that was started by Pope Paul VI in 1965, and succeeded by Pope John Paul II in 1979 and 1995. Pope Benedict’s message was both traditional and novel in content. Paolo Carozza, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Notre Dame, and recently appointed President of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, helps us to parse the different ideas in the Pope’s speech.

There Are No Human Rights Without Christ
When Pope Benedict XVI addressed the United Nations General Assembly on April 18th, he was continuing a tradition that began in 1965. Mario Ramos-Reyes, Professor of Philosophy at Kansas City Community College, writes about Pope Benedict’s contribution to this tradition
