Other babies slept through the Mass during which Benedict told the godparents their job is to teach the faith by example, even if it's unfashionable, and show that Christianity isn't a limit to personal freedom as it is sometimes portrayed.
He says: "It's not always easy to openly and uncompromisingly show your beliefs, especially in the context in which we live, in a society that often considers unfashionable those who live out their faith in Jesus."
He says faith isn't something that "mortifies" personal relations. He says, "It's not like that at all! This vision shows one hasn't understood anything about the relationship with God."
