New documentary chronicles ministry of papal preacher [The Catholic Sun]
From The Catholic Sun by Janna Reynolds:
Most Catholics probably know there are specific roles within the papal household that support the papacy.
Many may not be aware that the preacher to the papal household, also known as the apostolic preacher, is one of those official roles, a role established by Pope Paul IV in 1555.
Cardinal Raniero Cantalamessa, a Capuchin Franciscan friar, is the longest serving person in that position. He was appointed by St. John Paul II in 1980 and was reappointed by Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis.
The faithful around the world will soon be introduced to the cardinal in “The Preacher to the Popes: Raniero Cantalamessa,” a documentary that aims to foster authentic relationships among Christians of every tradition.
This documentary tells the story of the longest running Preacher to the Papal Household in history, Raniero Cardinal Cantalamessa.
