“At the end of these days of Spiritual Exercises, I would like to give a heartfelt thanks to you, your Eminence, for your spiritual guidance, which has been offered with such theological competence and spiritual depth. From my angle of vision, I have been able to see, on the wall of the Chapel, the image of Jesus kneeling before St Peter in order to wash his feet. Through your meditations, this image has spoken to me. I have recognized that precisely here, in this attitude, in this act of extreme humility, the new priesthood of Jesus is realized. It is realized in his act of solidarity with us, with our weaknesses, our suffering, and our temptations, even to the point of death. I have also seen the red vestments of Jesus with new eyes that speak to me of his blood. You, worthy Cardinal, have taught us that the blood of Jesus was, on account of his prayer, “oxygenated” by the Holy Spirit. In this way, it has become the power of resurrection and the source of life for us”. POPE BENEDICT XVI
 

Cardinal Albert Vanhoye S.J., formerly the Rector of the Pontifical Biblical Institute and Secretary of the Pontifical Biblical Commission, was born in 1923 at Hazebrouk, in the north of France, near the Belgian border. He entered the Company of Jesus in 1941 and was ordained priest on 26th July 1954. Since 1963, he has spent a good thirty years in intense teaching activity as Professor of New Testament exegesis at the Pontifical Biblical Institute. He is the author of numerous publications of an exegetical nature and was responsible for the Journal, Biblica, and the Analecta Biblica series. Besides this, he has taken part in the redaction of important documents that develop the teaching of the Second Vatican Council on the interpretation of Sacred Scripture. This intense scientific engagement has earned him international esteem and in February 2006, Pope Benedict XVI wished to recognize and honour his dedication by elevating him to the dignity of cardinal.
 
Fr Joel Wallace is a priest of the Diocese of Wagga Wagga. He is currently doctoring in Sacred Theology with the Pontifical John Paul II Institute, Rome.
