VATICAN CITY, Italy – During his Sunday Angelus address today, Pope Benedict XVI talked about Jesus Christ’s humble service and love.

“For man, authority often means possession, power, control, success,” Pope Benedict mentioned to the thousands of pilgrims who attended the event in St. Peter’s Square.

“For God, however, authority means service, humility, love,” he added, “it means entering into the logic of Jesus who stoops to wash the disciples’ feet, who seeks the true good of man, who heals wounds, who is capable of a love so great as to give up his life, because he is Love.”
