One Thing We Agree On

2 Jul 2005 /

The West reveals here a hatred of itself, which is strange and can be only considered pathological; the West is laudably trying to open itself, full of understanding, to external values, but it no longer loves itself; in its own history, it now sees only what is deplorable and destructive, while it is no longer able to perceive what is great and pure.

— Pope Benedict XIV, “If Europe hates itself”
