Benedict on Scripture

An interpretation of the sacred writings that disregards or forgets their inspiration does not take into account their most important and precious characteristic, that they come from God…  Through his word God wants to communicate to us the whole truth about himself and his plan of salvation for humanity.  A commitment to discovering ever more the truth of the sacred books, therefore, is a commitment to seeking to better know God and the mystery of his saving will.
