Truth Mar 3, 2006
This is a beautiful collection of Pope Benedict XVI's "own words" from the beginning of his papacy. Whether speaking with other clergy such as before the Conclave, meeting with various heads of state, talking with people at his general audiences or with the Youth in Cologne, Germany, Benedict always speaks clearly and simply. Through his words, you can see his passion and love for God, the Church, and Truth. A shy, warm, and loving man, he teaches us through his words. When Pope Benedict XVI speaks, people listen because he is able to phrase ideas and concepts into a language that everyone can understand and it appears that he is speaking directly to you as an individual. He gives concrete examples . . who could ever forget the homily at the funeral of Pope John Paul the Great when he mentioned about Pope John Paul II looking down from his apartment window? Or the examples of the saints' lives? And, there are dimensions to his words that simple folk can understand, yet the learned philosopher and theologian marvel at. Reading this little book gives one a huge lift in everyday life.
