An excerpt from Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone SDB message at the Knights of Columbus gathering this week. Rocco calls it "the most significant message of Benedict XVI's pontificate to the church in the United States. The audience in the room may have been the top leadership of the Knights of Columbus, but it's real target goes wider -- much wider -- than that":

(Sherry's note: the emphasis is mine)

In regard to the first question, this “Yes” is quite simply the “Yes” of faith. It is our full, unmitigated acceptance of Jesus as Lord and our commitment to follow him as master and teacher. Indeed, the word “Yes” only makes sense within the context of a dialog between two persons: someone who utters the “Yes” and someone who accepts it. In the case of faith, the person to whom we utter this “Yes” is none other than the Son of God, the Anointed One, the Eternal Word made flesh. Pope Benedict has emphasized the critical need for each of us to encounter Jesus; more importantly, he has shown and continues to show – both in his words and through his life – that true fulfilment, joy, and lasting peace can only be found by saying “Yes” to God’s plan of salvation as revealed in the person of Jesus Christ. Only in intimate communication with the incarnate Son of God do we discover the grace to “put our faith into action.”

Could intentional discipleship be articulated more clearly?
