Benedict XVI greets College of Cardinals

Greeting the College of Cardinals in the Vatican on Thursday morning, Pope Benedict XVI repeated that the Church is in the world, but not of it. The Holy Father took leave of his closest collaborators, remembering that it was a joy to walk together over the years and expressing the hope that the College might, like an orchestra, achieve a higher harmony and concord. As for the Church, he repeated the words of the theologian Romano Guardini, who wrote that it is a living reality, always becoming, but whose deepest nature remains always the same. Benedict XVI concluded by promising obedience and reverence to the new Pope.
