The Sign of the Cross
God in fact did not save the world with an act of power, but through the humiliation of his Only-Begotten Son. Measured in human parameters, the unusual ways of God clash with the demands of Greek wisdom. And yet, the Cross of Christ has a reason of its own which St Paul calls: ho logos tou staurou, “the Word of the Cross” (1 Cor 1:18).
—Pope Benedict XVI, General Audience 21 Nov. 2012: Year of Faith. The reasonableness of faith in God.
