It was updated for the Website on Feb. The original impetus for this paper was a four article debate between an Austrian economic thinker, Gregory Gronbacher, and a non-Austrian economist, Daniel Rush Finn, in the pages of Markets and Morality. The issue was over the extent to which John Paul, in noting the importance of economic initiative, creativity and entrepreneurship, and of the market in general, was inaugurating a new era in Catholic social teaching that might be particularly receptive to the ideas of free market economists.
Archbishop Michael Fitzgerald. The following is an address he delivered at Trinity College in Washington on October 25, This statement of Pope John Paul II in his missionary encyclical Redemptoris Missio says it all, and there would be no need to elaborate further. Yet perhaps it is necessary to unwrap this statement by examining what is meant by the terms evangelizing mission and interreligious dialogue and then looking at the relationship between the two. Evangelizing Mission. Evangelization, or evangelizing mission, is a very Catholic concept.
It constitutes an analysis on human sexuality. The complete addresses were later compiled and expanded upon in many of John Paul's encyclicals, letters, and exhortations. He examines man and woman before the Fall , after it, and at the resurrection of the dead. He also contemplates the sexual complementarity of man and woman. He explores the nature of marriage , celibacy and virginity , and expands on the teachings in Humanae vitae on contraception. According to author Christopher West , the central thesis of John Paul's Theology of the Body is that "the body, and it alone, is capable of making visible what is invisible: the spiritual and the divine. It was created to transfer into the visible reality of the world, the mystery hidden since time immemorial in God, and thus to be a sign of it.
The splendour of truth shines forth in all the works of the Creator and, in a special way, in man, created in the image and likeness of God cf. Gen Truth enlightens man's intelligence and shapes his freedom, leading him to know and love the Lord. Called to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, "the true light that enlightens everyone" Jn , people become "light in the Lord" and "children of light" Eph , and are made holy by "obedience to the truth" 1 Pet This obedience is not always easy. As a result of that mysterious original sin, committed at the prompting of Satan, the one who is "a liar and the father of lies" Jn , man is constantly tempted to turn his gaze away from the living and true God in order to direct it towards idols cf.
It expresses the position of the Catholic Church regarding fundamentals of the Church's role in moral teaching. The encyclical is one of the most comprehensive and philosophical teachings of moral theology in the Catholic tradition. It was promulgated on 6 August
Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves cf. Ex ; Ps ; ; Jn ; 1 Jn In both East and West, we may trace a journey which has led humanity down the centuries to meet and engage truth more and more deeply. It is a journey which has unfolded—as it must—within the horizon of personal self-consciousness: the more human beings know reality and the world, the more they know themselves in their uniqueness, with the question of the meaning of things and of their very existence becoming ever more pressing. This is why all that is the object of our knowledge becomes a part of our life. Moreover, a cursory glance at ancient history shows clearly how in different parts of the world, with their different cultures, there arise at the same time the fundamental questions which pervade human life: Who am I?
His pontificate of more than 26 years was the third longest in history. As part of his effort to promote greater understanding between nations and between religions, he undertook numerous trips abroad, traveling far greater distances than had all other popes combined, and he extended his influence beyond the church by campaigning against political oppression and criticizing the materialism of the West. He also issued several unprecedented apologies to groups that historically had been wronged by Catholics, most notably Jews and Muslims. His unabashed Polish nationalism and his emphasis on nonviolent political activism aided the Solidarity movement in communist Poland in the s and ultimately contributed to the peaceful dissolution of the Soviet Union in More generally, John Paul used his influence among Catholics and throughout the world to advance the recognition of human dignity and to deter the use of violence. His centralized style of church governance, however, dismayed some members of the clergy, who found it autocratic and stifling.
As the literary output of Pope John Paul II has accumulated, expanding almost beyond the assimilative powers of any one reader, and as he celebrates the silver jubilee of his pontificate, I have been asking myself, as I am sure that many others have: What lies at the very heart of his message? Is there some one concept that could serve as a key to unlock what is distinctive to this pope as a thinker?
