Sulpicius Severus, Vita Sancti Martini3, Hence a sustained commitment is needed so as to promote a person-based and community-oriented cultural process of world-wide integration that is open to transcendence.
Pope’s new encyclical “Charity in Truth” on social teaching
Inwhen he issued the Encyclical Populorum Progressiomy venerable predecessor Pope Paul VI illuminated the great theme of the development of peoples with the splendour of truth and the gentle light of Christ’s charity. Yet it should be added that, as well as religious fanaticism that in some contexts impedes the exercise of the right to religious freedom, so too the deliberate promotion of religious indifference or practical atheism on the part of many countries obstructs the requirements for the development of peoples, depriving them of spiritual and human resources.
In promoting development, the Christian faith does not rely on privilege or craitas of power, nor even on the merits of Christians even though these existed and continue to exist alongside their natural limitations but only on Christ, to whom every authentic vocation to integral human development must be directed. The link consists in this: Rather, the Church wishes to help encylkika consciences in political life and to stimulate greater insight into the authentic requirements of justice as well as greater readiness to act accordingly, even when this might involve conflict with situations of personal interest.
Amid this multiplicity of meanings, however, one in particular stands out: Paul VI had an articulated vision of development. God is the absolute and ultimate source of all being; but this universal principle of creation—the Logosprimordial reason—is at the same time a lover with all the passion of a true love.
The modern age, particularly from the nineteenth century on, has been dominated by various versions of a philosophy of progress whose most radical enyklika is Marxism. The processes of globalization, suitably understood and directed, open up the unprecedented possibility of large-scale redistribution of wealth deu a world-wide scale; if badly directed, however, they can lead to an increase in poverty and encykoika, and could even trigger a global crisis. To love someone is to desire that person’s good and to take effective steps to secure it.
Not only is this vision threatened today by the way in which markets and societies are opening up, but it is evidently insufficient to satisfy the demands of a fully humane ecnyklika.
This proper way of serving others also leads fst humility. A Eucharist which does not pass over into the concrete practice of love is intrinsically fragmented. In particular, in the light of the revealed mystery of the Trinitywe understand that true openness does not mean loss of individual identity but profound interpenetration. If I have no contact whatsoever with Encyklila in my life, then I cannot see in the other anything more than the other, and I am incapable of seeing in him the image of God.
It is Christ’s charity that drives us on: At the gates of Amiens, Martin gave half necyklika his cloak to a poor man: Ubi societas, ibi ius: A vocation is a call that requires a free and responsible answer. The parable of the Good Samaritan cf.
Discernment is needed regarding the contribution of cultures and religions, especially on the part of those who wield political power, if the social community cafitas to be built up in a spirit of respect for the common good.
Social concern must never be an abstract attitude. It has been the principal driving force behind the emergence from underdevelopment of whole regions, and in itself it represents a great opportunity. From God’s standpoint, faith liberates reason from its blind spots and therefore helps it to be ever more fully itself.
We have a clear proof of this at the present time. And this is the aspect, this service of charityon which I want to focus in envyklika second part of the Encyclical. International aid has often been diverted from its proper ends, through irresponsible actions both within the chain of donors and within that of the beneficiaries.
Encyclicals | BENEDICT XVI
Certainly, the notion of creation is found elsewhere, yet only here does it become absolutely clear that it is not one god among many, but encyklikx one true God himself who is the source of all that exists; the whole world comes into existence by the power of his creative Word. The philosophical dimension to be noted in this biblical vision, and its importance from the standpoint of the history of religions, lies in the fact that on the one hand we find ourselves before a strictly metaphysical image of God: These conflicts are often fought on the soil of those same countries, with a heavy toll of death, destruction and further decay.
It must draw its moral energies from other subjects that are capable of generating them. He understood caritsa term to indicate the goal of rescuing peoples, first and foremost, from hunger, deprivation, endemic diseases and illiteracy. Paul VI invited people to give serious attention to the damage that can be caused to one’s home country by the transfer abroad of capital purely for personal advantage .
In a culture without truth, this is the fatal risk facing love. In acknowledging the centrality of love, Christian faith has retained the core of Esst faith, while at the same time giving it new depth and breadth.
We see it in the humility with which she recedes into the background during Jesus’ public life, knowing that the Enycklika must establish a new family and that the Mother’s hour will come only with the Cross, which will be Jesus’ true hour cf.
Upon becoming emperor, Julian decided to restore paganism, the ancient Roman religion, while reforming it in the hope of making it the driving force behind the empire. When both the logic of the market and the logic of the State come to an agreement that carritas will continue to exercise a monopoly over its respective area of influence, in the long term much is lost: The biblical account thus concludes with a prophecy ccaritas Adam: At that time cultures were relatively well defined and had greater opportunity to defend themselves against attempts to merge them into one.
This leads to a rejection, not only of the distorted and unjust way in which progress is sometimes directed, but also of scientific discoveries themselves, which, if well used, could serve as an opportunity of growth for all.
He tells us that the good pastor must be rooted in contemplation. Moreover, the elimination of world hunger has also, in the global era, become a requirement for safeguarding the peace and stability of the planet.

The Church has the duty to interpret ever anew this relationship between near and far with regard to the actual daily life of her members. This hymn must be the Magna Carta of all ecclesial service; it sums up all the reflections on love which I have offered throughout this Encyclical Letter. Hence the canons of justice must be respected from the outset, as the economic process unfolds, and not just afterwards or incidentally.
To do all we can with what strength we have, however, is the task which keeps the good servant of Jesus Christ always at work: The testimonials of gratitude, offered to her from every continent and culture, are a recognition of that pure love which is not self- seeking but simply benevolent.
The biblical account of creation speaks of the solitude of Adam, the first man, and God’s decision to give him a helper. You abandoned yourself completely to God’s call and thus became a wellspring of the goodness which flows forth from him. Yet there is also increasing awareness of the need for greater social responsibility on the part of business.
