Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI)
If Platonism provides an idea of the truth, Christian belief offers truth as a way, and only by becoming a way has it become man's truth. Truth as mere perception, as mere idea, remains bereft of force; it only a man's truth as a way that makes a claim upon him, that he can and must tread.

--Cardinal Josef Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), Introduction to Christianity, 1968
