Pope Benedict on Benedict

Pope Benedict XVI spoke during today's General Audience about his namesake. Of course, he said much more in Italian, but with my lacking language skills, I can only refer to other sources to hear more about what the Pope said. AsiaNews, as always, has a good, brief article about the overall catechesis.

One of the money quotes from the article:
The "true humanism" of Saint Benedict, which means a journey toward God, remains today an antidote against the culture of the "easy and egocentric" self-realisation of man, a temptation "that is often exalted today", in a Europe that "just having left behind a century profoundly wounded by two world wars, and after the collapse of the grand ideologies, revealed as tragic utopias, is searching for its identity"....
