For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, and not with eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.…
When I came to you, brethren, I did not come
proclaiming to you the
testimony of God in lofty words or wisdom. For I
decided to know nothing among you but Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
I Corinthians 1:17, 2:1-2
Saint Paul sacrificed his own life, devoting himself without reserve to the ministry of reconciliation, of the Cross, which is salvation for us all. And we too must be able to do this: may we be able to find our strength precisely in the humility of love and our wisdom in the weakness of renunciation, entering thereby into God’s power. We must all model our lives on this true wisdom: we must not live for ourselves but must live in faith in that God of whom we can all say: “He loved me and gave Himself for me”.
Pope Benedict XVI
