BENEDICT XVI
"Jesus tells us that although Heaven and Earth will pass away, his words will remain. Let us pledge ourselves to build our lives more and more on the solid foundation of his holy word, the true source of life and joy.”

Despite the challenges faced by the modern world,  the Pope said that relativism is not a good option to overcome them.

Towards the end, the Pope emphasized the timeless words of Jesus, where he says that everything passes, but his words remain.
