Therefore, when theologians, as servants of divine truth, dedicate their studies and labours to ever deeper understanding of that truth, they can never lose sight of the meaning of their service in the Church, which is enshrined in the concept intellectus fidei.
Redemptor Hominis (4 March ) | John Paul II
As in preceding ages, and perhaps more than in preceding ages, theologians and all men of learning in the Church are today called to unite faith with learning and wisdom, in order to help them to combine with each other, as we read in the prayer in the liturgy of the memorial of Saint Albert, Doctor of the Church. Thus, a sense of responsibility for truth is one of the fundamental points of encounter between the Church and each man and also one of the fundamental demands determining man’s vocation in the community of the Church.
In men and “in man’s world”, which in itself is a world of moral good and evil, does good prevail over evil?
The world of the new age, the world of space flights, the world of the previously unattained conquests of science and technology-is it not also the world “groaning in travail” 45 that “waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God” 46? We must all share in this mission and concentrate all our forces on it, since it is more necessary than ever for modern mankind.
As we observe and take part in these processes we cannot let ourselves be taken over merely by euphoria or be carried away by one-sided enthusiasm for our conquests, but we must all ask ourselves, with absolute honesty, objectivity and a sense of moral responsibility, the essential questions concerning man’s situation today and in the future. These differences have causes in history, but they also have strong ethical effects.
While sharing the joy of all people of good will, of all people who truly love justice and peace, at this conquest, the Church, aware that the “letter” on its own can kill, while only “the spirit gives life”must continually ask, together with these people of good will, whether the Declaration of Human Rights and the acceptance of their “letter” mean everywhere also the actualization of their “spirit”. This commitment has been accepted and ratified by almost all present-day States, and this should constitute a guarantee that human rights will become throughout the encyklliki a fundamental principle of work for man’s welfare.
Has this process been decisively curbed? This is the document called Encyiliki Humanae, in which is expressed not only the theological concept of the question but also the concept enctkliki from the point of view of natural law, that is to say from the “purely human” position, on the basis of the premises given by man’s own experience, his reason and his sense of human dignity.
Indeed, as soon as he announced to the Encykliik College on 26 August that he wished to be called John Paul-such a double name being unprecedented in the history of the Papacy-I saw in it a encymliki presage of grace for the new pontificate. It is the task of the Magisterium in the first place to indicate which philosophical presuppositions and conclusions are incompatible with revealed truth, thus articulating the demands which faith’s point of view makes of philosophy.
Human nature, by the very fact that is was assumed, not absorbed, in him, has been raised in us also to a dignity beyond compare. In the light of this teaching, we see still more clearly the reason why the entire sacramental life of the Church and of each Christian reaches its summit and fullness in the Eucharist.
These words are listened to also by non-Christians. The Church lives his mystery, draws unwearyingly from it and continually seeks ways of bringing this mystery of her Master and Lord to humanity-to the peoples, the nations, the succeeding generations, and every individual human being-as if she were ever repeating, as the Apostle did: Man’s situation today is certainly not uniform but marked with numerous differences.
It is obvious that this new stage in the Church’s life demands of us a faith that is particularly aware, profound and responsible. Catechesis certainly constitutes a permanent and also fundamental form of activity by the Church, one in which her prophetic charism is manifested: It is a matter of the meaningfulness of the various encyklikl of everyday life and also of the premises for many civilization programmes, political programmes, eco nomic ones, social ones, state ones, and many others.
Encykliki i adhortacje, 1979-1981
This life, which the Father has promised and offered to each man in Jesus Christ, his eternal and only Son, who, “when the time had fully come”became incarnate and was born of the Virgin Jpli, is the final fulfilment of man’s vocation. Eastern Orthodox Church Judaism.
The Pope too and every Bishop must apply this principle to himself. Therefore it is required, when the Church professes and teaches the faith, that she should adhere strictly to divine truthand should translate it into living attitudes of “obedience in harmony with reason” All too often freedom is confused with the instinct for individual or collective interest or jpil the instinct for combat and domination, whatever be the ideological colours with which they are covered.
They may be very helpful in supporting young man trying to understand the essence of real love and looking for enchkliki of his human existence.

By Christ’s institution the Church is its guardian and teacher, having been endowed with a unique assistance of the Holy Spirit in order to guard and teach it in its most exact integrity His is a love that does not draw back before anything that justice requires in him. The Church does not cease to listen to his words. And one thing is certain: The opening made by the Second Vatican Council has enabled the Church and all Christians to reach a more complete awareness of the mystery of Christ, “the mystery hidden for ages” 69 in God, to be revealed in time in the Man Jesus Christ, and to be revealed continually in every time.
In such cases, we are clearly dealing with a “philosophical pride” which seeks to present its own partial and imperfect view as the complete reading of all reality Here we touch indirectly on the mystery of the divine “economy” which linked salvation and grace with the Cross. Does it not sometimes happen that the firm belief of the followers of the non-Christian religions-a belief that is also an effect of the Spirit of truth operating outside the visible confines of the Mystical Body-can make Christians ashamed at being often themselves so disposed to doubt concerning the truths revealed by God and proclaimed by the Church and so prone to relax moral principles and open the way to ethical permissiveness.
Rightly therefore does the Second Vatican Council teach: Since that pontificate lasted barely 33 days, it falls to me not only to continue it but in a certain sense to take it up again at the same starting point.
Even if briefly, this subject must also be dealt with, because it too enters into the complex of man’s situations in the present-day world and because it too gives evidence of the degree to which this situation is overburdened by prejudices and injustices of various kinds.
Inspired by eschatological faith, the Church considers an essential, unbreakably united element of her mission this solicitude for man, for his humanity, for the future of men on earth and therefore also for the course set for the whole of development and progress.
This necessarily imposes the duty to submit these programmes to continual revision from the point of view of the objective and inviolable rights of man. These are the very sources for the effort which will express man’s true freedom and which will be capable of ensuring it ebcykliki the economic field also.
This love and this aspiration to understand the truth must go hand in hand, as is confirmed by the histories of the saints in the Church. Faith without reason, he argues, leads to superstition.
In fulfilling this mission, we look towards Christ himself, the first evangelizer 79and also towards his Apostles, martyrs and confessors. This is an exigency of man’s temporal welfare and encykpiki his eternal welfare.
These rights are rightly reckoned to include the right to religious freedom together with the right to freedom of conscience. Furthermore, encymliki has always taught that the fundamental duty of power is solicitude for the common good of society; this is what gives power its fundamental rights. In the light of the sacred teaching of the Second Vatican Council, the Church thus appears before us as the social subject of responsibility for divine truth.
It is not a matter here merely encykiki giving an abstract answer to the question: In this context is man, as man, developing and progressing or is he regressing and being degraded in his humanity?
