Think of your brothers and sisters who are suffering hunger and misery! The latter are no less important than the former. Indeed, it is a significant fact, repeatedly confirmed by the experiences of history, that violation of the rights of man goes hand in hand with violation of the rights of the nation, with which man is united by organic links as with a larger family.

Above all, love is greater than sin, than weakness, than the “futility of creation” 59it is stronger than death; it is a love always ready to raise up and forgive, always ready to go to meet the prodigal son 60always looking for “the revealing of the sons of God” 61who are called to the glory that is to be revealed” Today we still need above all that understanding and interpretation of God’s Word; we need that theology.

This amazement determines the Church’s mission in the world and, perhaps even more so, “in the modern world”. The object of her care is man in his unique unrepeatable human reality, which keeps intact the image and likeness of God himself At times this awareness has proved stronger than the various critical attitudes attacking ab intra, internally, the Church, her institutions and structures, and ecclesiastics and their activities. Nobody, therefore, can make of theology as it were a simple collection of his own personal ideas, but everybody must encyklikj aware of being in close union with the mission of teaching truth for which the Church is responsible.

Redemptor Hominis (4 March ) | John Paul II

encyklki In any case, we cannot fail to recall at this point, with esteem and profound hope for the future, the magnificent effort made to give life to the United Nations Organization, an effort conducive to the definition and establishment of man’s objective and inviolable rights, with the member Jpoi obliging each other to observe them rigorously. We approach them with the esteem, respect and discernment that since the time of the Apostles has marked the missionary attitude, the attitude of the missionary.

This teaching, both in its missionary and its ordinary aspect, helps to assemble the People of God around Christ, prepares for participation in the Eucharist and points out the ways for sacramental life.

You have the words of eternal life” The Church wishes to serve this single end: Through these two names and two pontificates I am linked with the whole tradition of the Apostolic See and with all my Predecessors in the expanse of encyklikii twentieth century and of the preceding centuries.

Rather than make use of the human capacity to jpiii the truth, modern philosophy has preferred to accentuate the ways in which this capacity is limited and conditioned.

The sharing in the prophetic office of Christ himself shapes the life of the whole of the Church in her fundamental dimension. Eastern Orthodox Church Judaism. Thus the principle of human rights is of profound concern to the area of social justice and is the measure by which it can be tested in the life of political bodies.


Indeed, as soon as he announced to the Sacred 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 clear presage of grace for the new pontificate. In presenting the complete picture of the People of God and recalling the place among that people held not only by priests but also by the laity, not only by the representatives of the Hierarchy but also by those of the Institutes of Consecrated Life, the Second Vatican Council did not deduce this picture merely from a sociological premise.

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.

Since this man is the way for the Church, the way for her daily life and experience, for her mission and toil, the Church of today must be aware in an always new manner of man’s “situation”. Jesus Christ is the stable principle and fixed centre of the mission that God himself has entrusted to man. The first reason for disquiet concerns the essential and fundamental question: This state of things, which is burdensome for the societies concerned, would place special responsibility towards these societies and the history of man on those contributing to its establishment.

This sense remains unrealized if, instead of the exercise of power with the moral participation of the society or people, what we see is the imposition of power by a certain group upon all the other members of the society.

Encykliki i adhortacje, 1979-1981

If we refrain from entering into details in this enyckliki in which we would have a special right and duty to do so, it is above all because, together with all those who are suffering the torments of discrimination and persecution for the name of God, we are guided by faith in the redeeming enykliki of the Cross of Christ. By submitting man to tensions created by himself, dilapidating at an accelerated pace material and energy resources, and compromising the geophysical environment, these structures unceasingly make the ency,liki of misery spread, accompanied by anguish, frustration and bitterness.

Born of the Virgin Mary, he has truly been made one of us, like to us in all things except sin” 47he, the Redeemer of man.

Ehcykliki 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.

Our spirit is set in one direction, the only direction for our intellect, will and heart is-towards Christ our Redeemer, towards Christ, the Redeemer of man. The Planet Is Alive The essential commitment and, above all, the visible grace and source of supernatural strength for the Church as the People of God is to persevere and advance constantly in Eucharistic life and Eucharistic piety and to develop spiritually in the climate of the Eucharist.

Precisely for this reason, the Church’s consciousness must go with universal openness, in order that all may be able to find in her “the unsearchable riches of Christ” 10 spoken of by the Apostle of the Gentiles.

In building up from the very foundations the picture of the Church as the People of God-by showing the threefold mission of Christ himself, through participation in which we become truly God’s People-the Second Vatican Council highlighted, among other characteristics of the Christian vocation, the one that can be described as “kingly”.


But the question keeps coming back with regard to what is most essential -whether in the context of this progress man, as man, is becoming truly better, that is to say more mature spiritually, more aware of the dignity of his humanity, more responsible, more open to others, especially the neediest and the weakest, and readier to give and to aid all.

Rightly therefore does the Second Vatican Council teach: In order to be able to serve others worthily and effectively we must be able to master ourselves, possess the virtues that make this mastery possible. If we may use the expression, this is the human dimension of the mystery of the Redemption. And for that reason, the Redemption was accomplished in the paschal mystery, leading through the Cross and death to Resurrection.

However, we can and must immediately reach and display to the world our unity in proclaiming the mystery of Christ, in revealing the divine dimension and also the human dimension of the Redemption, and in struggling with unwearying perseverance for the dignity that each human being has reached and can continually reach in Christ, namely the dignity of both the grace of divine adoption and the inner truth of humanity, a truth which-if in the common awareness of the modern world it has been given such fundamental importance-for us is still clearer in the light of the reality that is Jesus Christ.

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.

If the opposite happens, human life is, even in time of peace, condemned to various sufferings and, along with these sufferings, there is a development of various forms of domination, totalitarianism, neocolonialism and imperialism, which are a threat also to the harmonious living together of the nations.

It is a question of respecting everything that has been brought about in him by the Spirit, which “blows where it wills” The Ecumenical Council gave a fundamental impulse to forming the Church’s self-awareness by so adequately and competently presenting to us a view of the terrestrial globe as a map of various religions.

On the night before he suffered he said to his apostles: Jesus Christ is the chief way for the Church. The initiatives taken by the Council in this field have been followed up by the many further initiatives of a synodal, apostolic and organizational kind.

When celebrating the Sacrament of the Body enncykliki Blood of the Lord, the full magnitude of the divine mystery must be respected, as must the full meaning of this sacramental sign in which Christ is really present and is received, the soul is filled with grace and the pledge of future glory is given It is the only condition when he can fulfil the superior aim of his service and get catechumen not only to the meeting with Jesus but also to unifying and deep intimacy with Him.
