[/LIST]Notes

[LIST]
*](1) This version of The Weekly Francis includes the daily homilies of the Holy Father. These homilies are not published in full and summaries are provided by Vatican Radio.
In a statement from Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi:
[/LIST]After careful reflection, therefore, it was decided that the best way to make the richness of the Pope’s homilies accessible to a wider public, without altering their nature, is to publish an ample synthesis, rich also in original quoted phrases that reflect the genuine flavor of the Pope’s expressions. It is what L’Osservatore Romano is committed to doing every day, whereas Vatican Radio, on the basis of its characteristic nature, offers a briefer synthesis, but accompanied also with some passages of the original recorded audio, as well as CTV which offers a video-clip corresponding to one of the inserted audios published by Vatican Radio.

[LIST]
*](2) The full English translation of the General Audience on 5 June 2013 has still not been released.

The Weekly Francis – 11 August 2013

This version of The Weekly Francis covers material released in the last week from 19 May to 11 August 2013.

The Weekly Francis is a compilation of the Holy Father’s writings, speeches, etc which I also post at*Jimmy Akin’s The Weekly Francis. Jimmy Akin came up with this idea when he started “The Weekly Benedict” and I have taken over curation of it.
