.- In an interview with the Itailian daily, “Il Tempo,” Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, said that “deafness to the voice of God” is the principal problem of our age.
According to the 76 year-old Cardinal, “We try to reduce Christ to somebody who had a great religious experience, a Christ merely human who is not great because of his divinity but only because of the convenience of the moment.”
Moreover, he underscored that these are same problems Pope John Paul has confronted during his Pontificate. “Materialism, agnosticism and relativism are the difficulties of our age,” he said.
Cardinal Ratzinger also stated that peace, unity and truth are the key words to this Pontificate.
