Press: Pope became priest to confront Nazi culture - AP

AP - Pope Became Priest to Confront Nazi Culture:

"'There was the Nazi regime,' [Pope] Benedict said. 'We were told very loudly that in the new Germany 'there will not be anymore priests, there will be no more consecrated life, we don't need this anymore, find another profession.''

'But actually hearing these loud voices, I understood that in confronting the brutality of this system, this inhuman face, that there is a need for priests, precisely as a contrast to this anti-human culture,' he said."
