Pope's Reflection at the Synod

Pope Benedict opened the Synod on the Word of God with a reflection about words and power.
Humanly speaking, the word, my human word, is almost nothing in reality, but a breath. As soon as it is pronounced, it disappears. It seems like nothing. But already the human word has incredible force. It is words that create history, it is words that form thoughts, the thoughts that create the word. It is the word that forms history, reality.

Even more, the Word of God is the foundation of everything, it is the true reality.
It is worth pondering in its entirety.
