He recently wrote these words in Latin on the Book of Honors at the Fatima Sanctuary:

Convertimini et credite Evangelio. Benedictus PP. 13.V.2010

That means "Be converted and believe in the Gospel."

Words of wisdom.

"Repent" is the more traditional translation of "convertimini" in that context. Definitely words of wisdom.
