Bishop John Quinn of Winona, Minn., said this week of youth: "They're looking for the truth. One of them said to me, 'Bishop, just tell us the truth. Don't sugarcoat it. We want to know what the truth is.' And someone else said to me: 'You know, bishop, we've been told so many lies, throughout the culture and by other people. Just give us the truth.'”
Benedict to German ambassador: 'The Church is aware, thanks to her faith, that she knows the truth about man and thus that she is obliged to protect those values which are valid for mankind as such, over and above individual cultures.'
