"Eclipse of God"

Pope Benedict led the universal church into the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul when he presided at its Evening Prayer at the Roman Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls.

During his homily the pope announced the formation of a new
pontifical council [it will be the 12th one], with the specific task of promoting a renewed evangelization in countries where the first proclamation of the faith already resounded, and where Churches are present of ancient foundation, but which are going through a progressive secularization of society and a sort of "eclipse of the sense of God."
In addition to the CNS story about the papal announcement, ZENIT has already translated his homily into English.
