Yet the promotion of justice through efforts to bring about openness of mind and will to the demands of the common good is something which concerns the Church deeply.
Their positive effects are also being felt in the less developed areas of the world.
This also emerges from the common human experiences of love and truth. The world that Paul VI had before him — even though society had already evolved to such an extent that he could speak of social issues in global terms — was still far less integrated than today’s world. Thus the Song of Songs became, both in Christian and Jewish literature, a source of mystical knowledge and experience, an expression of the essence of biblical faith: Suffice it to consider, on the one hand, the significant reduction in infant mortality and the rise in average life expectancy found in economically developed countries, and on the other hand, the signs of crisis observable in societies that are registering an alarming decline in their birth rate.
It thus transforms our impatience and our doubts into the sure hope that God holds the world in his hands and that, as the dramatic imagery of the end of the Book of Revelation points out, in spite of all darkness he ultimately triumphs in glory.
In his Apostolic Letter Octogesima Adveniens ofPaul VI reflected on the meaning of politics, and the danger constituted by utopian and ideological visions eest place its ethical and human dimensions in drus. Reason always stands in need of being purified by faith: In Populorum ProgressioPaul VI taught that progress, in its origin and essence, is first and foremost a vocation: On the part of rich countries there is excessive zeal for protecting knowledge through an unduly rigid assertion of the right to intellectual property, especially in the field of health care.
On the other hand, should he deny the spirit and consider caritss, the body, as the only reality, he would likewise lose his greatness. He was rncyklika an observation, but also expressing a wish: But is this the case? Prayer, as a means of drawing ever new strength from Christ, is concretely and urgently needed. In order to protect nature, it is not enough to intervene with economic incentives or deterrents; not even an apposite education is sufficient.
Perhaps at one time it was conceivable that first the creation of wealth could be entrusted to the economy, and then the task of distributing it could be assigned to politics. The more we strive to secure a common good corresponding to the real needs of our neighbours, the more effectively we love them. Every violation of solidarity and civic friendship harms the environment, just as environmental deterioration in turn upsets relations in society. The fact that some States, power groups and companies hoard non-renewable energy resources represents a grave obstacle to development in poor countries.
Public life is sapped of encylkika motivation and politics takes on a domineering and aggressive character. We recognize, caritaas, that the Church had good reason to be concerned about the capacity of a purely technological society to set realistic goals and to make good use of the instruments at caritaz disposal.
Pope’s new encyclical “Charity in Truth” on social teaching –
And deuus have also seen, synthetically, that biblical faith does not set up a parallel universe, or one opposed to that primordial human phenomenon which is love, but rather accepts the whole man; it intervenes in his search for love in order to purify it and to reveal new dimensions of it. Hence these relations take on fundamental importance.
The direct duty to work for a just ordering of society, on the other hand, is proper to the lay faithful. Open to the truth, from whichever branch of knowledge it comes, the Church’s social doctrine receives it, assembles into a unity the fragments in which it is often found, and mediates it within the constantly changing life-patterns of the society of peoples and nations .
Product Reviews | Benedykta XVI. DEUS CARITAS EST – Encyklika o miłości Chrześijańskiej
To her we entrust the Church and her mission in the service of love:. This has always been emphasized by Christian teaching on the State and by the Church’s social doctrine. These conflicts are often fought on the soil of those same countries, with a heavy toll of death, destruction and further decay. Love of God and love of neighbour are thus inseparable, they form a single commandment.
The teaching of the Letter to the Galatians is emphatic: They cariyas experience the gift of her goodness and encyklikka unfailing love which she pours out from the depths of her heart. When we consider the immensity of others’ needs, we can, on the one hand, be driven towards an ideology that would aim at doing what God’s governance of the world apparently cannot: The entire activity of the Church is an expression of a love that seeks the integral good of man: Charity in truth, in this case, requires that shape and structure be given to those types of economic initiative which, without rejecting profit, aim at a higher goal than the mere logic of the exchange of equivalents, of profit as an end in itself.
Both wisdom and prudence suggest not being too precipitous in declaring the demise of the State.
Technology, viewed in itself, is ambivalent. Significantly, our time has also seen the growth and spread of different kinds of volunteer work, which assume responsibility for providing a variety of services. The continuing hegemony of the binary model of market-plus-State has accustomed us to think only in terms of the private business leader of a capitalistic bent on the one hand, and the State director on the other. We can thus see how the reception of the Song of Songs in the canon of sacred Scripture was soon explained by the idea that these love songs ultimately describe God’s relation to man and man’s relation to God.
This too is a vocation, a call addressed by free subjects to other free subjects in favour of an assumption of shared responsibility. Economic life undoubtedly requires contractsin order to regulate relations of exchange between goods of equivalent value.
And yet God is not totally invisible to us; he cariras not remain completely inaccessible. By contemplating the pierced side of Christ cf. Hunger is not so much dependent on lack of material things as on shortage of social resources, the most important of which are institutional.
It is significant that some of the causes of this situation were identified in Populorum Progressiosuch as the high tariffs imposed by economically developed countries, which still make it difficult for the products of poor cariras to gain a foothold in the markets of rich countries.
This is demanded, in any case, by the earth’s state of ecological health; above all it is required by the cultural and moral crisis of man, the symptoms of estt have been evident for some time all over the world. It must be remembered that the market does not exist in the pure state. Peace in and among peoples would also provide greater protection for edus. Going beyond, however, never means prescinding from the conclusions of reason, nor contradicting its results.
