Abstract: J. Ratzinger/Benedict XVI reveals both theological and anthropological aspects of pride, resulting in further moral consequences. In reality, pride equals sin: undermining the created order of the world and challenging the dependent nature of man. Thus, Godlessness reaches here the ontic sphere and that is why it is so destructive for both men and the world. Though the sin of pride is mentioned on the first pages of the Bible, Benedict XVI seeks the source of its contemporary tempting nature and exceptional expansion in Nietzsche philosophy and similar anti-Christian trends, deluding one with the belief in self-sufficiency of the mind and absolute independence of human freedom. Humility is the opposite of pride. Church also should take care of it internally, drawing the example from the kenosis of God Himself, revealed in Jesus Christ. The first step towards humility is obedience, ability to obey.
