Quote Question


Recommended Posts

I am staffing a retreat next weekend and we are using a quote from Pope Benedict. The quote is: "The world offers you comfort, but you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness."

Does anyone know where he said this quote? (like at WYD Aussie, in an encyclical, at an audience, etc)

Is this the one you mean?
"The ways of the Lord are not comfortable, but we were not created for comfort, but for greatness, for good."

First audience as pope with German pilgrims.
