B16: Post-Vat II in Sum

Pope Benedict held a meeting on October 12 with the surviving bishops who had been participants in the Second Vatican Council. In his inimitable way, he made a comment to them that seemed to sum up the genuine future of the post-Conciliar Church:

The Council was a time of grace in which the Holy Spirit taught us that the Church, in her journey in history, must always speak to contemporary man, but this can only happen through the strength of those who are profoundly rooted in God, who allow themselves to be guided by Him and live their faith with purity; it does not happen with those who adapt themselves to the passing moment, those who choose the most comfortable way.
