Quote of the day: Benedict

quote81“Given the reality of cultural diversity, people need not only to accept the existence of the culture of others, but also to aspire to be enriched by it and to offer to it whatever they possess that is good, true, and beautiful.”
~ Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

I was pleasantly surprised to seeΒ from whom such open-minded and open-hearted words had come.

There can be so much separation and mistrust between people based on differences of culture, ethnicity, gender, etc. What a different place the world would be if more religious leaders spoke words and concepts of love and acceptance like was shared by Pope Benedict at the Meeting with the World of Culture in Lisbon on the 12th of May, 2010.
