The standard by which we will be judged


In his blog today, Luigi Accattoli tells us that he heard these words of Pope Benedict (from the Angelus address) while he was in his car at midday yesterday (my translation):
At the sunset of our days on earth, at the moment of death, we will be evaluated on the basis of our similarity or otherwise with the Baby who is to be born in the poor grotto of Bethlehem, since it is He who is the standard of measurement which God has given to humanity.
