By Joseph Ratzinger (Benedicto XVI),Gabriel Lanzas

Pero allí donde llega Él, el "infierno" deja de ser infierno, puesto que él mismo es los angeles vida y el amor, puesto que él es el puente que une al hombre y a Dios y, por eso mismo, también a los hombres entre ellos. Así, el descenso es al mismo tiempo también transformación: ya no existe los angeles última soledad».
