Betting on Freedom
with Luigi Geninazzi
In this wide-ranging conversation with the Italian journalist Luigi Geninazzi, Cardinal Angelo Scola discusses both the salient moments of his own life and the path and situation of the Church and society in Europe over the last half-century. At the center of this rich fresco of anecdotes and reflections stands a crucial question: what is the true path of the Church today?

For the Fathers of the Church, such mysteries or “difficulties”—many of which continue to puzzle modern scholars—marked divinely inspired points for prayer and reflection. Mysteries of the Lord’s Prayer offers the general reader, as well as scholars, a chance to rediscover a prayer that unites Christians throughout the world.
