For the occasion, at 11 a.m., Msgr. Dario Edoardo Viganò, prefect of the Secretariat for Communication, was present in the Holy See Press Office to speak with journalists.

The early Christians compared the human mind to a constantly grinding millstone; it is up to the miller to determine what it will grind: good wheat or worthless weeds.  Our minds are always “grinding”, but it is up to us to choose what to feed them (cf. St. John Cassian, Epistle to Leontius).
