We Are Responsible

Many of our brothers and sisters live as if there were nothing beyond this life, and without concern for their eternal salvation.  Men and women are called to know and love God, and the Church has a mission to assist them in this calling.  We know well that God is the master of his gifts and that conversion is a grace.  But we are responsible for proclaiming the faith, the whole faith, with all its demands. 

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
