Fri os fra det onde - febrilsk at presse mest muligt ud af livet

”Today … there is … the ideology of success, of wellbeing, that tells us, ’God is just fiction, he only robs us of our time and our enjoyment of life. Don’t bother with him! Just try to squeeze as much out of life as you can.’ These temptations seem irresistible… The Our Father … (is) trying to tell us that it is only when you have lost God that you have lost yourself; then you are nothing more than a random product of evolution. Then the ‘dragon’ has really won. So long as the dragon cannot wrest God from you, your deepest being remains unharmed, even in the midst of all the evils that threaten you.” Pave Benedikt den 16., Jesus of Nazareth, p. 166.
