Pope applauds foundation honoring former Milan archbishop

Vatican City, August 30 - The establishment of a foundation honoring Jesuit cardinal Carlo Maria Martini is an "act of justice," Pope Francis said on Friday. "Martini was a father for all of the Church. Even for us at the 'end of the world' who studied his texts," the Argentine pope said. Martini was archbishop of Milan from 1980 to 2002. The foundation, created by the Italian Province of the Society of Jesus, in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Milan, was established "to honour the memory of this eminent cardinal and scholar and to promote the study both of his life and of his works," a release from the foundation said. "It also intends to keep alive the spirit that animated his activities and which favoured the experience and knowledge of the word of God within the context of contemporary culture". Francis remembered Martini, who died in 2012, as a "prophet and man of judgement and peace".
