Pope Benedict XVI On "How Many Ways Are There to God"

Pope Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) was once asked the question

"How many ways are there to God?"

Here is his answer:

As many as there are people. For even within the same faith each man's way is an entirely personal one. We have Christ's word: I am the way. In that respect, there is ultimately one way, and everyone who is on the way to God is therefore in some sense on the way to Jesus Christ. But this does not mean that all ways are identical in terms of consciousness ans will, but, on the contrary, the one way is so big that it becomes a personal way for each man. (Salt of the Earth Ignatis Press 1997 pg 32)
