Pope Benedict Quote
"If Francis Xavier was able to pray to God, saying, ‘I love you, not because you have the power to give heaven or hell, but simply because you are you – my kin and my God,' then surely he had needed a long path of inner purifications to reach such ultimate freedom- a path through stages of maturity, a path beset with temptation and the danger of falling, but a necessary path nonetheless."

--From Jesus of Nazareth (no copies at the local Borders - a papal diss or underestimated demand?)
