Came across a thought from Josef Ratzinger in a 2000 interview he gave German journalist Peter Seewald at Montecassino.

"When it comes down to it, everyone has to undergo his own Exodus. He not only has to leave the place that nutured him and become independent, but has to come out of his own reserved self. He must leave himself behind, transcend his own limits; only then will he reach the Promised Land..."

So true.
So revealingly true.
