A Tribute to Benedict XVI
At the moment of this posting, Benedict XVI is in his last days or moments on earth. As we hold him in our prayers, we share his own words, which exquisitely apply to his extraordinary and exemplary life.
“Christianity’s claim to be true cannot correspond to the standard of certainty posed by modern science, because the form of verification here is of a quite different kind from the realm of testing by experiment; because the kind of experiment demanded – pledging one’s life for this – is of a quite different kind. The saints, who have undergone the experiment, can stand as guarantors of its truth, but the possibility of disregarding this strong evidence remains.”
From Truth and Tolerance, p. 226.
