Ratzinger on Faith

Quotes by Cardinal Ratzinger, the New Pope: "''Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the church, is often labeled today as a fundamentalism... Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and 'swept along by every wind of teaching,' looks like the only attitude acceptable to today's standards.
''We are moving toward a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as for certain and which has as its highest goal one's own ego and one's own desires.''
-- from a homily Ratzinger delivered at Mass hours before the beginning of the conclave that would elect him pope, April 18, 2005."
