CDF prefect discusses Pope’s trilogy on Jesus

Catholic World News - January 22, 2013

Paying tribute to Pope Benedict’s trilogy of books devoted to Jesus Christ, Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller, writes that “it is certainly worth studying this extraordinary work of about 900 pages.”

“Anyone who wishes to know what to expect of God and what man’s situation is must pass through Jesus of Nazareth,” the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith continued. “Jesus, in fact is not merely one of the determinative figures of human history, but rather the only man to be the measure for all. Through him God came to us, in him he accepted us and revealed to every person his highest calling. It is the only name under heaven by which we shall be saved (cf. Acts, 4:12).”

“Whenever some skeptic asks me if I truly believe that the Only-Begotten Son of God was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary without a man’s contribution, I answer with conviction and without hesitation: yes, because I believe in God to whom nothing is impossible,” Archbishop Müller added. “Creation does not flee from God’s hand. The eternal Word can become flesh in a Virgin. Faith in God and in his boundless possibility for action [is] reasonable. Conversely it would be contrary to reason to limit God's saving plan and action in history to what the human being considers possible.”
