Daily Rome Shot 621

“The history of salvation is not a small event, on a poor planet, in the immensity of the universe. It is not a minimal thing which happens by chance on a lost planet. It is the motive for everything, the motive for creation. Everything is created so that this story can exist, the encounter between God and his creature.”

— Pope Benedict XVI
address at the opening of the 12th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, 6 October 2008
