"A world without truth isn’t a world liberated from conflict; it’s a world without the possibility of reconciliation."
Stephen White, “What Popes Are For” (via badwolfcomplex)
Paris, Tuileries Gardens, 4th June 1906
"I offer one final thought: Benedict has offered us a witness of the exceptional sovereignty of the pope. Truly he is the successor of Peter who has freely manifested his resignation, which can be accepted by no power on earth. Such a demonstration of papal authority is astonishing in its constitutional implications. St. Peter Celestine pray for us and for your successors!"
