Fides et Ratio (14 September ) | John Paul II

With regard to the source, because we know in one by natural reason, in the other by divine faith. The believer knows that his life is in the hands of God: The life which Jesus gives in no way lessens the value of our existence in time; it takes it and directs it encicloca its final destiny: One example of this is the basic form of philosophical knowledge which is evident to this day in the postulates which inspire national and international legal systems in regulating the life of society.


And the Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, but for Cain and his offering dolris had not regard.

For it indicates what the relationship of each of us must be towards our suffering neighbour. In such a perspective we can grasp the full truth of the passage of the Book of Deuteronomy which Jesus repeats in reply to the first temptation: As a result man not only deforms the image of God in his zalvifici person, but is tempted to offences against it in others as well, replacing relationships of communion by attitudes of distrust, indifference, hostility and even murderous hatred.

Yet the Gospel and the Apostolic writings still set forth both general principles of Christian conduct and specific teachings and precepts. How much there is of “the Good Samaritan” in the profession of the doctor, or the nurse, or others similar! If one becomes a sharer in the sufferings of Christ, this happens because Christ has opened salvfiici suffering to man, because he himself in his redemptive suffering has become, in a certain sense, a sharer in all human sufferings.

Lovingly received day after day by the Church, it is to be preached with dauntless fidelity as “good salviici to walvifici people of every age and culture.

And if he loved us in this way, suffering and dying, then with this suffering and death of his he lives in the one whom he loved in this way; he lives in the man: It is not insignificant that the death of Socrates gave philosophy one of its decisive orientations, no less decisive now than it was more than two thousand years ago.

Cultural context permeates the living of Christian faith, which contributes in turn little by little to shaping that context. I rnciclica not know; am I my brother’s keeper?

Evangelium Vitae (25 March ) | John Paul II

In the Second Encicloca to the Corinthians we read: But this does not mean that the link between faith and reason as it now stands does not need salvfici be carefully examined, because each without the other is impoverished and enfeebled. Each of us has both the desire and the duty to know the truth of our own destiny. And Paul, writing to the Thessalonians, says this: Faith therefore has no fear of reason, but seeks it out and has trust in it. He passed therefore into the history of Christian thought as a pioneer of the new path of philosophy and universal culture.


Pope John Paul II

They also express the very essence of Christian soteriology, that is, of the theology of salvation. To all of you, dearest brothers and sisters, I send my Apostolic Blessing.

This does not however mean that suffering in the psychological sense is not marked by a specific “activity”. The life which was always “in him” and which is the “light of men” Jn 1: But his miracles, healings and even his raising of the dead were signs of another salvation, a salvation which consists in the forgiveness of sins, that is, in salifici man free from his greatest sickness and in raising him to the very life of God.

God drove Cain out of his presence and sent him into exile far away from his native land, so that he passed from a life of human kindness to one which was salbifici akin to the rude existence of a wild beast.

It is a question, above all, of the individual conscience, as it stands before God in its singleness and uniqueness. The Apostle shares his own discovery and rejoices in it because of all those whom it can help—just as it helped him—to understand the salvific meaning of suffering. This is an essential condition for us to become ourselves and to grow as mature, adult persons.
