Jesus makes God visible to man, Pope tells Sunday audience

Catholic World News - May 23, 2011

At his Sunday audience on May 22, Pope Benedict XVI said that belief in God and belief in Jesus Christ are “not two separate acts but one single act of faith.”

"The New Testament has put an end to the invisibility of the Father," the Holy Father said. “We can see God, He is visible in Christ.” Before concluding his midday audience the Pope spoke about the International Ecumenical Peace Convocation, being organized by the World Council of Churches and held in Jamaica. He expressed support for the initiative and said that all people of good will should share the “noble intention and recommit ourselves to eliminating violence in families, in society, and in the international community.”
