New Testament to be given out in St. Peter's Square Sunday (ANSA) - Vatican City, April 4 - Pope Francis has ordered the distribution of special pocket editions of the New Testament to the faithful attending the regular Sunday Angelus, the Vatican press office said Friday. "Pope Francis has repeatedly urged the faithful to always carry a small book of the Gospels, and to take it in hand often to reread and meditate on the words and actions of Jesus, particularly those mentioned in the liturgy of the day on which the Pope has made his reflections," Vatican Spokesman Father Federico Lombardi told journalists. The initiative follows the similar "Misericordine" project to distribute free rosary beads some months ago. The Vatican will be assisted by hundreds of volunteers, including 150 scouts, seminar students at the Seminario Romano, the sisters of Mother Teresa and others.
