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

Local prof. in NY Times interview

Dr. Christopher Ruddy, a thology professor at my univeristy, got a good quote in a recent NY Times article on Pope Benedict and his "plans." It is a pretty good article, considering the source, and it was nice to see that they interviewed a few good folks (like Dr. Ruddy! :)

For the most part, it would seem that "they" are still pretty much bemused and confounded by the character of our Holy Father Pope Benedict... keeping 'em guessing he is!

"I don't get any sense of him wanting to purge or anything," said Christopher Ruddy, an assistant professor of theology at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn. "But I think he is willing to say what he thinks are hard truths, or unpopular truths."
