I’ll give you more on this later, but I am just starting to read the Holy Father’s address for Christmas to the Roman Curia.
As you know, his address in 2005 was pivotal for his whole pontificate.
That was the address in which he have a new orientation for the Curia, indeed the whole Church, away from the "hermeneutic of rupture and discontinuity" toward a "hermeneutic of reform" and continuity.
I think this is the heart of Pope Benedict’s vision for his pontificate and his "Marshall Plan" for the Church.
BTW… the Cardinal Dean, Angelo Card. Sodano, began his address to the Holy Father by citing the hymn Vox clara ecce intonat. PODCAzT 77 can help you drill into that great Advent hymn.
