Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

JPII, Why Did We Love You?

Great column by Mary Beth Bonacci, one of my favorite authors for her books on God's love and sexuality for teenagers and young adults (if you have a confirmation class or teach CCD, you need to grab a few copies of her book Real Love)

Why did the youth of the world love a Pope who gave them so many rules? Because he didn’t just give them rules -- he gave them the love of Christ. In the context of that love, those "rules" take on a whole new meaning. They aren’t about jumping through hoops. They are about living and passing on the love they have received.
