The Faith Is Transmitted

This morning at 9:30 a.m. in the Sistine Chapel, Pope Francis presided at Mass for the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, during which he gave a homily and administered the sacrament of baptism to twenty-six babies (full text, full video, summary video). As well, here is a really good video of a couple who had their baby baptized by Pope Francis.

At noon overlooking St. Peter’s Square, he gave an Angelus Address (full text, full video, summary video).

Also today was released an excellent series of articles (part 1, part 2, part 3) revealing details of an interview of Pope Francis by Vatican reporter Andrea Tornielli. The interview itself is to be published in book form this coming Tuesday, and is titled, The Name of God is Mercy (purchase link, summary video).
