Pope Benedict noted “the Church’s charitable activity also needs to be constantly exposed to the demands of due detachment from worldliness, if it is not to wither away at the roots in the face of increasing erosion of its ecclesial character.”
“[I]t is time once again to discover the right form of detachment from the world, to move resolutely away from the Church’s worldliness,” said the Pope. (Source)
The Pope is thousands of miles away and yet he understands “social justice” in Canada more than any bishop here. Just how pathetic is that?
