"We are part of this world, tied to the possibilities
and limits of our material condition,
at the same time we are open to an infinite horizon,
able to converse with God and to welcome Him in us.
We operate in earthly realities and through them we can perceive the presence of God and seek Him, truth, goodness and absolute beauty.
We savour fragments of life and happiness and we long for total fulfillment."
~ Pope Benedict XVI (2010 Homily for Unborn Life)
