Quote of the Week

From Benedict XVI, in a speech to the German Cardinals, translated from the German by Sandro Magister, comes a major-league slapdown of the modern Western world.

"We Christians should not be afraid of the spiritual encounter with a society that conceals behind ostensible intellectual superiority its perplexity in the face of the ultimate existential questions."

A society that conceals its perplexity behind a facade of intellectual superiority...badaboom, badabing.
