Pope Benedict XVI on Power and Possessions

By Peter Darcy | On Apr 6, 2017 | No Comments | In Faith and Virtue Quotes

“As long as power and wealth are seen as ends in themselves, then power is always power to be used against others and possessions will always exclude others. The mystery of the greatness of God is that he can be small. He doesn’t always have to take the highest place or the box seats. God tries in his way to wean us away from our ideas of power and domination. He shows by his example that true power is discovered only in the service of others.”

~Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
