Homily of December 11, 2014: Thursday of the Second Week of Advent: Memorial of St. Damasus [Cardinal Rigali - Podcast]
St. Damasus led the Church in veneration of the martyrs and in love for the word of God. On his memorial the Church proclaims one of the most exquisite revelations of God's love. Jesus says: "As the Father has loved me, so I also love you....Love one another as I have loved you." This love is a great part of the Advent Mystery.
