Journaliste italien ayant une formation en sciences politiques, Vittorio Messori a voulu éclaircir pour lui-même la question lancinante sur Jésus : "Et si c'était vrai?" Sans être spécialiste dans le domaine, il a donc entrepris pendant plus de dix ans de dépouiller les travaux importants des exégètes et des théologiens, de rencontrer des spécialistes et de visiter les sites archéologiques des territoires bibliques. Puis il a fait une synthèse de ses découvertes. Cette synthèse, ce bilan, il les livre au public en toute honnêteté, heureux de faire partager ses découvertes

Opus Dei : leadership and vision in today's Catholic Church by Vittorio Messori( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Journalist Vittorio Messori's searching questions to Pope John Paul II inspired the Holy Father to write his bestselling Crossing the Threshold of Hope. Now Messori tells how Escriva, a humble and energetic Spanish priest beatified by Pope John Paul II, came to found Opus Dei - the most powerful source of lay spiritual renewal in the Catholic Church today. Escriva proclaimed that holiness and great happiness are to be found in the ordinary tasks of life. Work, play, family life, friendships - all these, Escriva taught, are means to deep inner joy and freedom, if properly understood and lived." "Opus Dei explores what this transforming message, first proclaimed by Escriva in 1928, later a major theme of the Second Vatican Council and strongly endorsed by the Holy Father, has meant not only for the personal lives of the members of Opus Dei, but also for the cultures in which these members live. In addition, this book provides answers to questions commonly raised about this fresh and invigorating spirituality. Opus Dei: Leadership and Vision in Today's Catholic Church is must reading for anyone interested in spirituality, Christianity, and the history of the Catholic Church in the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET

Benedict XVI's reform : the liturgy between innovation and tradition by Nicola Bux( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Benedict XVI reestablished the celebration of the older Latin Mass, voices of protest rose up from many sides. This book explains the motives behind the Pope's decision to allow two forms of the Mass by turning to the Pope's own theological and liturgical writings and also draws on the author's experiences on various Church commissions and in offices of the Roman Curia. The author also brings to his subject an astute understanding of current social and spiritual trends both inside and outside the Church. Sensitive to modern man's hunger for the sacred, he desires with Pope Benedict XVI that the Mass be first and foremost a place of encounter with the living God. --Publisher

Kidnapped by the Vatican? : the unpublished memoirs of Edgardo Mortara by Vittorio Messori( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1888 Fr. Edgardo Mortara wrote his autobiography so that the world would understand he had not been kidnapped by the Vatican. Here, along with a thorough introduction by Vittorio Messori, his story is published for the first time in English. As an infant, Mortara was on the point of death and secretly baptized by a Catholic servant employed by his family. He recovered his health, and in the Papal States where his family lived, the law required that he, like other baptized children, receive a Christian education. After several failed attempts to persuade his parents to enroll him in a local Catholic school, in 1858 Pope Pius IX had the boy taken from his family in Bologna and sent to a Catholic boarding school in Rome. There the child grew in Faith and eventually responded to the calling to become a Catholic priest. The Mortara Case reverberated around the world. Journalists, politicians, and Jewish leaders tried to pressure Pius IX to reverse his decision. The pope's refusal to do so was used as one of the reasons to dissolve the Papal States in 1870. Currently the case is being used as an argument against the canonization of Pius IX, whom John Paul II beatified in 2000 -- Back cover
