VATICAN CITY, FEB 24, 2005 (VIS) - Lenten sermons will begin tomorrow, Friday February 25, in the "Redemptoris Mater" Chapel of the Vatican's Apostolic Palace at 9 a.m.. The theme of the four meditations, which will be led by Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa O.F.M. Cap., preacher of the Papal Household, is: "O Memorial of my Savior Dying" (Reflections on the Eucharist in the light of the hymn "Adoro te devote").

  According to a communique issued by the Prefecture of the Pontifical Household, "continuing the reflections that began in Advent, the remaining four verses of 'Adoro te devote' will be commented on. These are verses which have as their theme the Eucharist and the resurrection; the Eucharist as remembrance and communion; the Eucharist and the return of creatures to God."

  Cardinals, archbishops, bishops and prelates of the Roman Curia, of the Vicariate of Rome and of the Pontifical Household are invited to the meditations, as are the superior generals of orders that form part of the "Cappella Pontificia." The other three Lenten sermons will take place on the following Fridays: March 4, 11 and 18.
