Benedict XVI: Faith is needed to understand God's plan

2012-12-05

BENEDICT XVI
"As our free assent of mind and will to divine revelation, faith calls us to conversion and brings a new way of seeing the reality of our lives and the world around us. During this Advent, may we contemplate ever more fully the beauty of God’s loving plan, and strive to be living signs of his saving presence in our world.”


For many of those attending the audience,  faith plays a key role in their lives. That's the case of Hazel and Steven Rogers, newlywed couple that
visited Rome for a Papal blessing.

STEVEN ROGERS
Newlywed (England)
"It's an extension to the wedding ceremony we had back in England, it continues on from that day.”

The couple admits it enjoys traveling the world.  But it was precisely because of their faith that they agreed to make the Vatican their first trip after their wedding.

HAZEL ROGERS
Newlywed (England)
"This is an individual thing for us, this is something that means something to us as a couple. Where as the wedding was a big celebration for our friends and family, where this is an opportunity for us to express our faith and enjoy some time together, just the two of us.”

With the start of Advent, the Pope is hoping people will reflect, not just on the birth of Jesus, but also on the second coming that will lead to salvation.
