QUINTERO MOLINA, Juan David. The Search for God Spiritual theology in Benedict XVI speech to the Bernardines' Collège in Paris. Cuest. teol. [online]. 2011, vol.38, n.89, pp.175-183. ISSN 0120-131X.

This text is an analysis of the speech given by Pope Benedict XVI in September 12, 2008 in Paris, in the auditorium which belonged once to the monastery of the Bernardines. After giving the contents of the speech, the author presents three analyses: the first is christological and anthropological; the second is a liturgical and pneumatological interpretation; and the third bears some ideas to understand better the spiritual proposal concealed in the speech. At the end, there are three witnesses given by those present at the event. The main purpose is to show the search for God as a search that is common to all human beings, where the contribution given by christianity is not an elaborated discourse on that search but the testimony of men and women who have met with a God very close to us.

Keywords : Benedict XVI; Theology; Christology; Liturgy; Spiritual Theology.
