Human nature always asks the question about God, Pope says

Catholic World News - November 25, 2011

Speaking on November 25 to the members of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, Pope Benedict XVI said that the Church must meet the challenge of proclaiming God’s existence to an increasingly skeptical world.

The question of God is always relevant and always pressing, the Pope insisted. Even when societies become averse to any discussion of faith, human nature ensures that people will ask the ultimate questions.

Looking back across the year, Pope Benedict mentioned the World Youth Day celebration in Madrid and the Lay Congress in Seoul as key initiatives undertaken by the Pontifical Council for the Laity. He called particular attention to the Asian event, which took place in “a continent that is home to people of different cultures and religions of ancient origin, who often live the faith in difficult circumstances, sometimes even suffering persecution."
