"What we have seen in the Semon on the Mount is a hidden Christology. Behind the Sermon on the Mount stands the figure of Christ, the man who is God, but who, precisely because he is God, descends, empties himself, all the way to death on a cross. The saints, from Paul through Francis of Assisi down to Mother Teresa have lived out this option and have thereby shown us the correct image of man and his happiness."-Pope Benedict XVI, Jesus of Nazareth, pg. 99
Now, you see why I was overjoyed when this wonderfully articulate Christian was elected Pope!
