Benedict XVI: Study theology to preach the Gospel

2010-02-03

The pope called on priests and lay people to study their Christian faith profoundly in the name of the founder of the Dominican Order.

According to Benedict XVI, studying theology isn’t a way to achieve a brilliant career; but a service to be rendered with dedication and humility.

Benedict XVI
“Christ, is the most precious treasure that men and women of all times and places have the right to know and love!”

Benedict XVI made a special reference to the Year for Priests and encouraged all priests and seminarians to unite their studies with prayers to get to know God on a deeper level.
