Capuchin Father Raniero Cantalamessa focused on the need “to re-evangelize the secularized Western world” in delivering the annual Anthony Jordan Lecture Series May 7 at St. Joseph’s Basilica. Cantalamessa, the 76-year-old preacher to the papal household, singled out three obstacles that he said makes “countries of ancient Christian heritage, including Canada, immune to the Christian message.”
His three talks, attended by more than 300 people, focused on scientism, rationalism and secularism and spelled out a Christian response to each of those obstacles.
