Benedict XVI is a prophet for our times

In Jesus of Nazareth, Benedict XVI describes a prophet in this way:

His task is not to report the events of tomorrow or the next day in order to satisfy human curiosity or the human need for security. He shows us the face of God, and in so doing he shows us the path that we have to take. Among all the paths of history, the path to God is the true direction that we must seek and find.

The prophet shows us the face of God. And Jesus of Nazareth is Benedict's "personal search for the face of God" that he shares with us...Benedict is helping us as a prophet does, and with his help we can find the path that we have to take.
