Benedict XVI on Freedom and Truth

Pope Benedict XVI:

“Llife is not governed by chance; it is not random. Your very existence has been willed by God, blessed and given a purpose!”

“Life is not just a succession of events or experiences, helpful though many of them are. It is a search for the true, the good and the beautiful. It is to this end that we make our choices; it is for this that we exercise our freedom; it is in this – in truth, in goodness, and in beauty – that we find happiness and joy.”

“There is also something sinister which stems from the fact that freedom and tolerance are so often separated from truth. This is fuelled by the notion, widely held today, that there are no absolute truths to guide our lives.”

(Address to Youth – Sydney, Australia, July-2008)
