Pope urges integral human formation against "dictatorship of relativism"
During the general audience, Benedict XVI retraces the stages of his journey to the Czech Republic. No one should "fear the truth". The truth is a “friend of man and his freedom”. “Those with positions of responsibility in politics and education must always find light in the truth that is a reflection of the eternal wisdom of the Creator and are called to witness this with their own lives."

Pope: In Prague, now free, Christians make themselves heard to face the Millennium challenges
During his visit to Prague, Benedict XVI recalls the persecution of Christians during the 40 years of communist regime, that wanted to eliminate the Church, but "without God man does not know where to go and does not even understand who he is." Love and respect that is due to all children.

Pope says those who deny God seem to have an easy life, but are sad and unsatisfied
Benedict XVI concluding his visit today to the Czech Republic, repeats the warning against regimes and ways of life that reject the existence of God. Today we need "people who are 'believers' and 'credible', ready to bring to every sphere of society those Christian ideals and principles which guide their actions. On his arrival he had warned dictatorship is based on lies.

Pope: Church's mission in the face of atheist persecution and relativism
Benedict XVI recalls the martyrs under communism, who "drew strength" from the Gospel and calls everyone to a witness of love. In a world drowning in relativism and consumerism, focus on the education of youth and charity.
Pope: failure to recognise the inviolable law of nature leads to a "dictatorship of relativism"
Illustrating the figure of John of Salisbury in the general audience, Benedict XVI says that only when laws protect the sanctity of human life, marriage between a man and a woman and aspire to a secular State guaranteeing respect for religious freedom and the principle of subsidiarity, can they be considered fair. The "great responsibility" of culture, communication, media.

Pope in Brno: Christ is certain hope for the Czech people, Europe and all humanity
The history of the Czech lands is a symbol for the whole of humanity. Nazism and Communism appear when man “excludes God.” Today, in a society where faith is restricted to the private sphere, “progress is ambiguous”, with possibilities for good as well as evil. The Pontiff offers all Christians the message of hope in the crucified and risen Christ. He remembers John Paul II.
