Homily of Pope Benedict's Inauguration Mass

Cardinal Burke sent me a little card with an excerpt from the homily of Benedict XVI's Inauguration Mass (may I live to see the day when the Pope celebrates the Holy Mass and is then crowned with the Papal Tiara!) from Sunday April 24, 2005.
"And only when God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a though of God. Each of us is willed, each of us is loved, each of us is necessary. There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him."
