Las Vegas shooting reveals what Benedict XVI called the sorrow of the world. I just happened to begin reading a book by Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI) last week that nails with eerie prophetic accuracy a core problem we are facing today: a sense of despair that St. Thomas Aquinas referred to as the sorrow of the world -the same worldly grief that St. Paul concludes produces death (2 Cor. 7:10). In The Yes of Jesus Christ: Spiritual Exercises in Faith, Hope and Love, Ratzinger’s words, given as a retreat in 1989, blaze with insight about the sorrow of the world.

Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI) is recognized as one of the most brilliant theologians and spiritual leaders of our age. As pope he authored the best-selling Jesus of Nazareth. Prior to his pontificate, he wrote many influential books important for the contemporary Church, such as Introduction to Christianity and The Spirit of the Liturgy. Among the 28 topics the reflections cover are Advent, Lent, Pentecost, "may devotions", and "vacation time".

The following is a list of Papal encyclicals written by Pope Benedict XVI. A Papal encyclical is a letter usually treating some aspect of Catholic doctrine sent by the Pope and addressed to Catholic bishops.

The Yes of Jesus Christ Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI)

This book, which contains spiritual exercises on Faith, Hope, and Love, was first written by Ratzinger for a retreat he conducted in Collevalenza in 1986. The meditations are very well documented scholarly pieces that
are more "lessons" than "exercises" - lessons written by a master teacher, a professor who enjoys keeping our focus by telling stories and introducing us to fresh insights into "old" concepts. I will relate a few of the ideas Benedict presents.

In the early pages he suggests that we need to learn the "skill of skills" or the "act of being human". Benedict posits that as people we are very good at making things and of dominating the world that God gave us. We, however, are miserable at the art of existence. Somehow we "lost" the art of how to live. We seldom even talk about what things and people "are", the very nature of "being".

Benedict relates that often people treat God as the "guarantee of human success", which degrades God. God is never defeated and HE is not diminished in human defeat. Actually God's promises become greater in human defeat, "as love grows to extent the beloved has need of it."

In his section on Love, Cardinal Ratzinger begins to establish the view of love as Eros and agape being natural to the establishment of "real love" that is a true gift from God. This is a clear preview of the encyclical Deus Charitas Est that he wrote as Pope.

Benedict`s insights on the Sermon on the mount, perspective on love and the cross, and attitude toward fear are edifying and increase the value of this work. I recommend this publication, especially for those anxious to grow in their faith in Jesus.

Really great book

Impressed by this clear and insightful book. Cardinal Ratzinger (at the time of writing) elucidates how our scientific age and unrelenting push toward progress can forsake one's most valuable asset; his soul. He looks to faith, hope and love as providing true nourishment of the soul.

The Yes of Jesus Christ is a short book by Joseph Ratzinger that offers reflections on faith, hope, and love. In the first part, the book begins with the question, "Is faith an attitude worthy of a modern and mature human being?" The answer is an obvious yes, but Ratzinger goes on to explain that there are three elements of everyday faith. 1. Its always directed to someone who "knows" the matter at hand. 2. Trust of the majority who in their daily use of things are able to build less on the substantial knowledge that should lie behind such use. 3. A certain verification of knowledge in my everyday experience. The book then agnosticism asking if it is a viable solution (Clearly no), and pauses to reflect on true wisdom. Natural knowledge of God and supernatural faith is then examined.

The second part of the book takes us back to the 1970s to focus on "the optimism of the modern age and Christian hope." This leads to him listing three Biblical examples of the nature of Christian hope - the Prophet Jeremiah, the Revelation of John, and the Sermon on the Mount. Part Three wraps up focusing on both hope and love, because the two belong together. Therefore, he discusses the essential nature of love, love and the Cross, and agape love. The book then ends with two sermons, which tie together faith and love, the first one focusing on inheriting eternal life and the other on the feast of St. Henry. Like most of Ratzinger's works, this is not one you casually skim or breeze through. This is one that you take the time to read and digest, and then re-read it, because if you're like me you missed a bunch your first time through.

This is a very beautiful and brilliant account in virtues. If you are a Christian, ya gotta strive to get it right. If your a Buddhist, the same is true. If your Jewish, live it! Whatever the Faith of any Individual, it must be reflected or attempted to be driven towards the reflection of their life experiences. Not too much to say about this book except that it needs to be read! It needs to have an impact on the lives that it comes in touch with. Otherwise, what's the point in pretending to be someone your not or don't care to be?
