“I am reluctant to say anything that runs against [holy Scripture and Catholic tradition] on the pretext that we have superior insight today. Respect for the deposit of faith should not be called conservatism in the pejorative sense but a simple loyalty to the word of God. … I do not particularly strive for originality. Very few new ideas, I suspect, are true. … Far more valuable would it be to insert oneself in the great tradition of the fathers and doctors of the Church. I myself try to think and speak within that tradition, while taking due notice of new and deviant opinions. … [T]he present climate of opinion does not favor tradition and orthodoxy, two terms that have negative connotations for many hearers.”
