ADDRESS OF HIS HOLINESS BENEDICT XVI ON THE OCCASION OF CHRISTMAS GREETINGS TO THE ROMAN CURIA
I came across this recent address from Pope Benedict XVI. After reading it, I was in awe, of his ability to grasp and comprehend the current state of affairs in the context of God's salvific plan. I think that many may read this address and find it to be hopeless, I rather disagree. Certainly, he speaks plainly about the continuing decline of the western world and it's impending darkness. However, if you notice, the realization, that we are descending as have previous cultures and generations into a sort of global darkness, does not seem to steal his joy. He still speaks with great faith, hope, and charity. I often marvel at his wisdom, his courage, and his holiness. Let us pray for his intentions and contemplate in prayer what the Lord's will is for us, as we try to rebuild a culture that is unquestionably in decline.
