The Church sees their developing presence in these institutions both as a sign of hope and as a confirmation of the irreplaceable lay vocation in the Church and in the world, confident that lay people will, in the exercise of their constitucni distinctive role, “illumine and organize these temporal affairs in such a way that they always start out, develop, and continue according to Christ’s mind, to the praise of the Creator and the Redeemer” For many years I myself was deeply enriched by the beneficial experience of university life: Therefore, I desire to share with everyone my profound respect for Catholic Universities, and cpnstitucin express my great appreciation for the work that is being done in them in the various spheres of knowledge.

A Catholic University, therefore, is a place of research, where cirde scrutinize reality with the methods proper to each academic discipline, and so contribute to the treasury of human knowledge.

Theologians enjoy this same freedom so long as they are faithful to these principles and methods. Catholic Universities will seek to discern and evaluate both the aspirations and the contradictions of modern culture, in order to make it more suited to the total development of individuals and peoples.

Through teaching and research, a Catholic University offers an indispensable contribution to the Church. AAS 79p. Therefore they have the full right to expect that civil society and public authorities will recognize and defend their institutional autonomy and academic freedom; moreover, they have the right to the financial support that is necessary for their continued existence and development.

A Catholic University is to promote the pastoral care of all members of the university community, and to be especially attentive to the spiritual development of those who are Catholics.

AAS 67p. Having the mission of bringing the Good News to everyone, the Church should never fail to interest herself in this Institution. Among the criteria that characterize the values of a culture are above all, the meaning of the human person, his or her liberty, dignity, sense of responsibility, and openness to the transcendent.

University research will seek to discover the roots and causes of the serious problems of our time, paying special attention to their ethical and religious dimensions.

There is only one cultre: It serves all other disciplines in their search for meaning, not only by helping them to investigate how their discoveries will affect individuals and society but also aapostlica bringing a perspective and an orientation not contained within their own methodologies. The present age is in urgent need of this kind of disinterested service, namely of proclaiming the meaning of truth, that fundamental value without which freedom, justice and human dignity are extinguished.


AAS 71p. The Presidents of these colleges will never implement the tenets apostliac Ex Corde Ecclesiae unless they are forced. Newer Post Older Post Home.

Periodically, each Catholic University, to which Artide 3, 1 and 2 refers, is to communicate relevant information about the University and its activities to the competent ecclesiastical Authority. In addition to assisting men and women in their continuing quest for the truth, this research provides an effective witness, especially necessary today, to the Church’s belief in the apostljca value of knowledge and research.

This responsibility begins within the academic community, but it also finds application beyond it. And thanks to her Catholic Universities and their humanistic and scientific inheritance, the Church, expert in humanity, as my predecessor, Paul VI, xonstitucin it at the United Nations 6apoetlica the mysteries of humanity and of the world, clarifying them in constigucin light of Revelation.

Bishops have a particular responsibility to promote Catholic Universities, and especially to promote and assist in the preservation and strengthening of their Catholic identity, including the protection of their Catholic identity in relation to civil authorities.

This task requires persons particularly well versed in the cored disciplines and who are at the same time adequately prepared theologically, and who are capable of confronting epistemological questions at the level of the relationship between faith and reason.

Together with all my brother Bishops who share pastoral responsibility with me, I would like to manifest my deep conviction that a Catholic University is without any doubt one of the best instruments that the Church offers to our age which is searching for certainty and wisdom. Lay people have found in university activities a means by which they too could exercise an important apostolic role in the Church and, in most Catholic Universities today, the academic community is largely composed of laity; in increasing numbers, lay men and women are assuming important functions and responsibilities for the direction of these Institutions.

One consequence of its essential relationship to the Church is that the institutional fidelity of the University to the Christian message apostkica a recognition of and adherence to the teaching authority of the Church in matters of faith and morals.

It is also my desire to express my pleasure and gratitude to the very many Catholic scholars engaged in teaching and research in non-Catholic Universities. Finally, Catholic theology, taught in a manner faithful to Scripture, Tradition, and the Dorde Magisterium, provides an awareness of the Gospel principles which will enrich the meaning of human life and give it a new dignity.

In its unique manner, the Catholic University helps to manifest the superiority of the spirit, that can never, without the risk of losing its very self, be placed at the service of something other than the search for truth” The Church, accepting “the legitimate autonomy of human culture and especially of the sciences”, recognizes fcclesiae academic freedom of scholars in each discipline in accordance with codde own principles and proper methods 28and within the confines of the truth and the common good.

AAS 58p. It means his effort to bring the world itself under his control by his knowledge and his labor. AAS 58 [], p. Through research and teaching the students are educated in the various disciplines so as to become truly competent in the specific sectors in which they will devote themselves to the service of society and eccclesiae the Church, but at the same time prepared to give the witness of their faith to the world.

By its very nature, a University develops culture through its research, helps to transmit the local culture to each succeeding generation through its teaching, and assists cultural activities through its educational services. Each individual discipline is studied in a systematic manner; moreover, the various disciplines are brought into dialogue for their mutual enhancement. Constktucin in any way neglecting the acquisition of useful knowledge, a Catholic University is distinguished by its free search for the whole truth about xonstitucin, man and God.

Directors and administrators in a Catholic University promote the constant growth of the University and its community through a leadership of service; the dedication and witness coorde the non-academic staff are vital for the identity and life of the University.

In the world today, characterized by such rapid developments in science and technology, the tasks of a Catholic University assume an ever greater importance and urgency. It is invited in a special way to guard the rights and freedom of these Institutions in civil society, and to offer them economic aid, especially in those countries where they have more urgent need of it, and to furnish assistance in founding new Catholic Universities wherever this might be necessary.

In addition, a Catholic University, aware that human culture is open to Revelation and transcendence, is also a primary and privileged place for a fruitful dialogue between the Gospel and culture. In this context, Catholic Universities are called to a continuous renewal, both as “Universities” and as “Catholic”. Freedom in research and teaching is recognized and respected according to the principles and methods of each individual discipline, so long as the rights of the individual and of the community are preserved within the confines of the truth and the common good AAS 68pp.

Their task as academics and scientists, lived out in the light of the Christian faith, is to be considered precious for the good of the Universities in which they teach. It is in the context of the impartial search for truth that the relationship between faith and reason is brought to light and meaning. Catholic Universities will, when possible and in accord with Catholic principles and doctrine, cooperate with government programmes and the programmes of other national and international Organizations on behalf of justice, development and progress.
