Cardinal_Maradiaga-2His Eminence Oscar Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga, S.D.B., Archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and President of Caritas Internationalis, addressed the 2013 CCCB Plenary Assembly on “The role of the Bishop and Episcopal Conferences in justice, peace and caritas”. He spoke about how the landmark Encyclical Deus Caritas Est and the Motu Proprio Intima Ecclesiae Natura, issued by Pope Benedict XVI when he was in the Petrine office, changed the way Catholics think about and practice charity. The Cardinal’s address was followed by an outline of how Caritas Internationalis is organized throughout the world, presented by its Secretary General Mr. Michel Roy.
