Quote of the Day
God has brought us into existence, not because he needed us or because we could give him something, but simply out of love. Pope Benedict emphasised this truth in his homily at the Mass for the Inauguration of his Pontificate:

“We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed; each of us is loved; each of us is necessary.”
Monsignor Joseph Murphy, Secretariate of State, Vatican
