Ratzinger on the cross

Over at Fear & Trembling there are some excerpts of a 1997 interview in which Cardinal Ratzinger reflected on the life of the church. Here’s one of the excerpts:

“It is indeed often asked today how we can still speak of God and do theology after Auschwitz. I would say that the Cross recapitulates in advance the horror of Auschwitz. God is crucified and says to us that this God who is apparently so weak is the God who incomprehensibly forgives us and who in his seeming absence is stronger.”
