Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Liberty isn’t liberalism, arbitrariness, but it’s connected; it’s conditioned by the great values of love and solidarity and in general by the good.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Perhaps reluctantly we come to acknowledge that there are also scars which mark the surface of our Earth-erosion, deforestation, the squandering of the world’s mineral and ocean resources in order to fuel an insatiable consumption.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Celibacy is not a matter of compulsion. Someone is accepted as a priest only when he does it of his own accord.”

Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “It is important always to remember that virtual contact cannot and must not take the place of direct human contact with people at every level of our lives...”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “By itself, the question of the liturgy’s essence and the standards of the reform has brought us back to the question of music and its position in the liturgy. And as a matter of fact one cannot speak about worship at all without also speaking of the music of worship.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Enough with the slaughters. Enough with the violence. Enough with the hatred in Iraq!”

Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Seeing with the eyes of Christ, I can give to others much more than their outward necessities; I can give them the look of love which they crave.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “It is important always to know that the first word, the true initiative, the true activity comes from God and only by inserting ourselves into the divine initiative, only begging for this divine initiative, shall we too be able to become – with him and in him – evangelizers.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “In the Eucharist a communion takes place that corresponds to the union of man and woman in marriage. Just as they become “one flesh”, so in Communion we all become “one spirit”, one person, with Christ.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “The Faith does not mean an alienation from any culture for any people because all cultures await Christ and are not destroyed by the Lord. In fact, they reach their maturity.”

Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Art means: revealing God in everything that exists.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Beauty, then, is not mere decoration, but rather an essential element of the liturgical action, since it is an attribute of God himself and his revelation. These considerations should make us realize the care which is needed, if the liturgical action is to reflect its innate splendour.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Vigilance is demanded of Christians as the basic attitude for the “interim time”. This vigilance means, on the one hand, that man does not lock himself into the here and now and concern himself only with tangible things, but that he raises his eyes above the present moment and its immediate urgency. Keeping one’s gaze freely fixed upon God in order to receive from him the criterion of right action and the capacity for it – that is what matters.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “A just laicism allows religious freedom. The state does not impose religion but rather gives space to religions with a responsibility toward civil society, and therefore it allows these religions to be factors in building up society.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “What a treasure is hidden in two small words: ‘thank you!’”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Let us say plainly: the unredeemed state of the world consists precisely in the failure to understand the meaning of creation, in the failure to recognize truth; as a result, the rule of pragmatism is imposed, by which the strong arm of the powerful becomes the god of this world.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “It is rational to believe, as it is our very existence that is at stake.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “For me, it’s a great joy to be together with priests: in the end, the bishop of Rome is the bishop and brother of all priests. His mandate is to confirm the brothers in the faith.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “An Adult faith does not follow the waves of fashion and the latest novelties.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Each generation, as it seeks to advance the common good, must ask anew: ‘What are the requirements that governments may reasonably impose upon citizens, and how far do they extend? By appeal to what authority can moral dilemmas be resolved?’”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Terrorist activity is continually recurring in various parts of the world, sowing death and destruction and plunging many of our brothers and sisters into grief and despair.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “There is no other possibility for possessing certitude with regard to one’s life apart from self-abandonmen t, in a continuous crescendo, into the hands of a love that seems to grow constantly because it has its origin in God.”
Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “The blessing hands of Christ are like a roof that protects us. But at the same time, they are a gesture of opening up, tearing the world open so that heaven my enter in, may become “present” within it.”

Pope Benedict XVI Quote: “Dialogue is the fundamental unfolding of a gift of oneself to another.”

It is through his cries, his tears, and his prayers that Jesus does what the high priest is meant to do: he holds up to God the anguish of human existence.”
