We Are Safe by Papa Benedict 12/21/12

“I would say that the Christian can afford to be supremely confident, yes, fundamentally certain that he can venture freely into the open sea of the truth, without having to fear for his Christian identity. To be sure, we do not possess the truth, the truth possesses us: Christ, who is the Truth, has taken us by the hand, and we know that his hand is holding us securely on the path of our quest for knowledge. Being inwardly held by the hand of Christ makes us free and keeps us free: free because, if we’re held by him, we can enter openly and fearlessly into any dialogue; safe because he does not let go of us, unless we cut ourselves off from him. At one with him, we stand in the light of Truth.” Image
