Measured by popular standard, however, Jesus was a failure. He was not interested in politics or the international balance of powers or putting money in people’s pockets.  He had an upside down-inside out view of what really mattered: the child more than the powerful, the merciful one more than the self-righteous one, the poor man over the rich man, God’s kingdom more than the kingdom of this world. He would not take up arms except to oppose the defilement of the Temple.  He would not even defend himself in the face of accusation.

Most Reverend Joseph N Perry

The crisis of fatherhood that we are experiencing today is a basic aspect of the crisis that threatens mankind as a whole.

— Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI on the Crisis of Fatherhood
