Pope on life's shipwrecks

On the way to Malta to mark the 1,950th anniversary of the Saint Paul's shipwreck on the island, Pope Benedict gave one of three reasons he is pilgrimaging to the country:

I also think the memory of the shipwreck says something to us. With the shipwreck, Malta was given to opportunity to have the faith. In this way, we can also think about how the shipwrecks of life can be part of God's project for us, and be useful for a new beginning in our life.
From the experiences of my own life, I know what he says to be true.
