At his first general audience this morning Pope Francis urged Catholics to “go out, with Christ, in search of the one lost sheep, however far it may have wandered“.

The Archdiocese of Havana has published a note written by the future Pope Francis summarising his influential address to cardinals before the conclave.

The editors of Commonweal argue that “Francis will have to be a master builder if the Church is to make its message heard in a time of great discord“.

Zenit publishes the introduction from Matthew Bunson’s new biography of the Pope.

Carl Olson suggests that Benedict XVI was “the greatest theologian-pope” in Church history.

Edward Mulholland notes striking similarities between Pope Francis and the bishop in Les Misérables.

And after gaining worldwide attention for quoting Amy Winehouse, Vatican Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi has begun to tweet Coldplay lyrics.
