Pope: Christianity is more than a set of morals. Christianity is love

2012-11-14

BENEDICT XVI
"Yet today, in our secularized world, faith often seems difficult to justify; we are faced with a "practical” atheism, a tendency to think and live "as if God did not exist.'”

In a time when faith can be seen as irrelevant or useless, the Pope reminded Christians that they need to justify their beliefs with respect and kindness. He said one of those explanations can be the way in which faith transforms lives. Another is Mother Nature and human's inner yearning for a Divine connection. 

BENEDICT XVI
"We can find such reasons in the order and beauty of creation itself, which speaks of its Creator; in the longing for the infinite present in the human heart, which finds satisfaction in God alone.”

With roughly 8,000 people gathered at the Vatican's Paul VI Hall, the Pope emphasized that
Christianity is more than just a set of morals. Above it all, the Pope explained that at its very core, Christianity is love.

BENEDICT XVI
"Yet once God is removed from our lives, we become diminished, for our greatest human dignity consists in being created by God and called to live in communion with Him.”

Among those attending the general audience, was London's Westminster Cathedral Choir. Dressed in their choir clothing, the young group sang for the Pope.
