Official Spiritual Mentor of this Blog

Bishop of Rome, successor of St. Peter, holder of the keys to Heaven, slayer of error.

How does he inspire me?

In 1997 Ratzinger called Buddhism an "autoerotic spirituality" that offers "transcendence without imposing concrete religious obligations." Hindusim, he said, offers "false hope," in that it guarantees "purification" based on a "morally cruel" concept of reincarnation resembling "a continuous circle of hell." At the time, Cardinal Ratzinger predicted that Buddhism would replace Marxism as the Catholic church's main enemy.

Now that's awesome!
