RANIERO CANTALAMESSA, O.F.M. Cap., has been the papal preacher to Pope John Paul II s pontifical household since 1980. He is a former professor of History of early Christianity, head of the department of religious studies at the Catholic University in Milan, member of the International Theological Commission and author of numerous books. He lives in Rome, Italy.
This English translation of the original written by Pope John Paul II's preacher to the papal household contains five Lectio Divina reflections on passages from the Letter to the Ephesians. This first four reflections were delivered to the Papal household. Of the most interest to me was the final reflection on the topic of the family as "domestic church" with focus on the relationship between spouses and between parents and children.
