“Today, having a clear faith based on the Creed of the Church is often labeled as fundamentalism. Whereas relativism, that is, letting oneself be tossed here and there, carried about by every wind of doctrine, seems the only attitude that can cope with modern times. We are building a dictatorship of relativism that does not recognize anything as definitive and whose ultimate goal consists of one’s own ego and desires… [Jesus] is the measure of true humanism…He suffered the whole drama of our autonomy – and precisely by placing our will in God’s hands, He gives us true freedom…The more we love Jesus, the more we know Him, the more our true freedom develops, and our joy in being redeemed flourishes…”

–Pope Benedict XVI, from Benedictus Moments, March 2.
