During the general audience, Benedict XVI reflected on the relationship between faith and reason. This time he remembered the great intellectual contribution made at the Abbey of St. Victor in Paris and in particular the work of monks Hugo and Richard of St. Victor.Benedict XVI “These great Victorines, Hugh and Richard, remind us that theology is grounded in the contemplation born of faith and the pursuit of understanding, and brings with it the immense joy of experiencing the eternal love of the Blessed Trinity.”
According to the Pope when striving for the theological virtues one also meets, in human terms, stability and maturity. That’s why Benedict XVI encouraged to live for and by the people. Benedict XVI “How much would the world change if in families, in parishes and in any community, relationships were modeled on the three divine Persons, who not only live with each other, but for and through one another.”
The general audience has celebrated Paul VI. According to the Vatican more than 7 thousand pilgrims were in attendance.
