A New Book on Benedict XVI

Click on this site to hear about this new book. Benedictus: New book on the Holy Father. Read the article, Benedict XVI, As Seen Up Close at Zenit HERE.

"The key to the person and the ministry of Benedict XVI is the love of God," Cardinal José Saraiva Martins said, affirming that the Pontiff's first encyclical, "Deus Caritas Est," "represents the particularity of this Pontiff."

The prelate (Cardinal Saraiva Martins) continued: "He is always guided by a fatherly love that does not resign itself to seeing his children drown in mediocrity.

The article concluded with my favorite description of Pope Benedict XVI:

And since "faith and reason are the two wings that raise us to the truth," Archbishop Amato concluded, "it is precisely the truth, love for the truth and the proposal of truth that is the common thread giving continuity to Ratzinger, before as prefect, now as Pope."
