"My Joy and My Crown"

Keeping with the theme of memory and tribute, the following is fullvideo of Archbishop Pietro Sambi's final address to the US bishops at last November's Plenary in Baltimore.

As the meeting took place days after the late Nuncio's 25th anniversary as a bishop, Sambi reflected on the milestone and his four decades in the diplomatic service of the Holy See before returning to the key thread of his first November speech to the bench in 2006: his call for a fresh "wave of proclamation of the Word of God, a [new] evangelization with faith and courage" in the Stateside church.
