Pope lauds theologian Guardini's search for truth

Catholic World News - October 29, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI paid tribute to Romano Guardini, in an address to participants in a conference on the work of the 20th-century theologian.

The Holy Father—who studied under Guardini in his youth—said that the noted theologian “wanted to know the truth of God and the truth about man.” He remarked that Guardini “purified and deepened” the scholarly commitment of his students, constantly reminding them that “freedom is truth.”

Guardini also took a keen interest in the Church’s liturgy, the Pontiff added: "The rediscovery of the liturgy was for him the rediscovery of unity of body and spirit in the completeness of the whole man. In fact, the liturgical attitude is always both a physical and spiritual attitude.”
