God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth” Again and always man.

When celebrating the Sacrament of the Body and 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 No privilege is asked for, but only respect for an elementary right.

For if, as was already said, man is the way for the Church’s daily life, the Church must be always aware of the dignity of the divine adoption received by man in Christ through the grace of the Holy Spirit and of his destination to grace and glory 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. Today I wish to make that reply known publicly to all without exception, thus showing that there is a link between the first fundamental truth of the Incarnation, already mentioned, and the ministry that, with my acceptance of my election as Bishop of Rome and Successor of the Apostle Peter, has become my specific duty in his See.

It is a matter of the meaningfulness of the various initiatives of everyday life and also of the premises for many civilization programmes, political programmes, eco nomic ones, social ones, state ones, and many others. The mission is never destruction, but instead is a taking up and fresh building, even if in practice there has not always been full correspondence with this high ideal. In this way, turning to man and his real problems, his hopes and sufferings, his achievements and falls-this too also makes the Church as a body, an organism, a social unit perceive the same divine influences, the light and strength of the Spirit that come from the crucified and risen Christ, and it is for this very reason that she lives her life.


It is obvious that this new stage in the Church’s life demands of us a faith that is particularly aware, profound and responsible. Yet history shows that philosophy—especially modern philosophy—has taken wrong turns and fallen into error.

Redemptor Hominis (4 March ) | John Paul II

Indeed, the Synod was the source, among other things, of that essential momentum for evangelization that found expression in the Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Nuntiandi 17which was so joyously welcomed as a programme for renewal which was both apostolic and also pastoral. He worked with human jipi, he thought with a human mind.

Referring also to the centuries old tradition of the Church, attention should pjii directed to the activity of the various diocesan, provincial and national Synods. The essential sense of the State, as a political community, consists in that the society and people composing it are master and sovereign of their own destiny.

It was not without reason that the Apostle speaks of Christ’s Body, the Church The Pope too and every Bishop must apply this principle to himself. If we may use the expression, this is the human dimension of the mystery of the Redemption.

What the Spirit said to the Church through the Council of our time, what the Spirit says in this Church to all the Churches 8 cannot lead to anything else-in spite of momentary uneasinesses-but still more mature solidity of the whole People of God, aware of their salvific mission.

This is the fundamental question that the new Pope must put to encyklii on accepting in a spirit of encyklki in faith the call corresponding to the command that Christ gave Peter several times: However, one element seems to stand out in the midst of all these riches: And one thing is certain: 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 jpiii for “the revealing of the sons of God” 61who are called to the glory that is to be revealed” The present-day Church seems to repeat with ever greater fervour and encyklkki holy insistence: He and he alone also satisfied that fatherhood of God and that love which man in a way rejected by breaking the first Covenant 51 and ency,liki later covenants that God “again and again offered to man” John XXIII and Paul VI are a stage to which I wish to refer directly as a threshold from which I intend to continue, in a certain sense together with John Paul I, enncykliki the future, letting myself be guided by unlimited trust in and obedience to the Spirit that Christ promised and sent to his Church.


This century has so far been a century of great calamities for man, of great devastations, not only material ones but also moral ones, indeed perhaps above all moral ones. The “price” of our redemption is likewise a further proof of the value that God himself npii on man and of our dignity in Christ. For the present, this last development seems unfortunately to be always left behind.

Sundered from that truth, individuals are at the mercy of caprice, and their state as person ends up being judged by pragmatic criteria based essentially upon experimental data, in the mistaken belief that technology must dominate all. We have, in particular, a encyklikii sense of responsibility for this truth. Nor can we, on the other hand, ever forget the following words of Saint Paul: Such openness, organically joined with the awareness of her own nature and certainty of her own truth, of which Christ said: The Church does not cease to listen to his words.
