A note of grace in Benedict XVI

Ratzinger the right choice for postmodern challenges

"We are moving toward a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as certain and which has as its highest goal one's own ego and one's own desires."

So Joseph Ratzinger charged the cardinals before the conclave, and so they responded in choosing him. It is a good choice, a gracious choice, an ordered response for a postmodern generation. Ratzinger, now Benedict XVI, will do his best, before God, to theologically orient the Roman Catholic Church.

Anyone that can see this clearly into Liberation Theology will do well to speak to the world as pope.

I doubted that he would be chosen because of his age [78], but even a short term of Ratzinger will be a good thing for the RCC, and for the world.

Congratulations, Christopher! Your site was prophetic...

Many of your prayers were answered today!

God bless,

Loy
