“Nosotros existimos para enseñar Dios a los hombres. Y únicamente donde se ve a Dios, comienza realmente la vida. Sólo cuando encontramos en Cristo al Dios vivo, conocemos lo que es la vida. No somos el producto casual y sin sentido de la evolución. Cada uno de nosotros es el fruto de un  pensamiento de Dios. Cada uno de nosotros es querido, cada uno es amado, cada uno es necesario. Nada hay más hermoso que haber sido alcanzados, sorprendidos, por el Evangelio, por Cristo. Nada más bello que conocerle y comunicar a los otros la amistad con él.”                            -Papa Benedicto XVI
