Benedict’s Message on The Core Failing of Man

Amy Welborn points to an extraordinary sermon by the Pope, which deals with the Immaculate Conception of Mary, and says this about original sin:

“The suspect emerges in us that a person who does not sin at all is really boring; that something is missing in his life: the dramatic dimension of being autonomous; that the freedom to say no is part of truly being men, the descent into the darkness of sin and to do as one pleases; that only then will one be able to exploit completely the vastness and depth of being men, of being truly ourselves; that we must put this liberty to the test even against God to become in reality fully ourselves. In a word, we think that really evil is good, at least a little, we need to experiment the fullness of being. We think that Mephistopheles ‘” the tempter ‘” was right when he said he was the strength ‘which always wants evil and always does good’
