Thoughts on Paul: VII

[Occasional reflections translated from the collection, "Pensieri su Paolo" by Benedict XVI.]

The freedom of the Sons of God.

We desire true and great liberty, that of heirs, the liberty (freedom) of the sons of God (cf. Rom. 8:15). In this world full of fictitious liberty, which destroys man and the environment, we want, with the strength of the Holy Spirit, to learn together the true liberty; to construct schools of liberty; to demonstrate to others with our lives that we are free, and how beautiful it is to be truly free in the true freedom of the sons of God. Homily March 3, 2006.
