“The capacity to accept suffering for the sake of

goodness,

truth

and justice i

s an essential criterion of humanity,

 

because if my own

well-being and safety are ultimately more important

than truth and justice,

 

then the power of the stronger prevails,

 

then violence and untruth reigns supreme.”

 

Pope Benedict XVI Saved in Hope: Spe Salvi  ]
