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

Schindlers and Pope Benedict

Taking a break from my Philosophy of Mind paper (ugh... what a beast!) I spotted this on the newswire from today's papal general audience!!

Bob & Mary Schindler (the parents of Terri Schiavo, may she rest in peace), plus some memembers of the Priests for Life group, greeting Pope Benedict, with a picture frame of the prayer card that they had printed up for Terri's death. Wonder what he told them? Words of hope I am sure, and thanksgiving for their fidelity to God and life.
