Theology plays a particularly important role in the search for a synthesis of knowledge as well as in the dialogue between faith and reason. AAS 57p. 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. While each discipline is taught systematically and according to its own methods, interdisciplinary studies, assisted by a careful and thorough study of philosophy and theology, enable students to acquire an organic vision of reality and to develop a continuing desire for intellectual progress.

The present Constitution will come into effect on the first day to the academic year Induded among its research activities, therefore, will be a study of serious contemporary problems in areas such as the dignity of human life, the promotion of justice for all, the quality of personal and family life, the protection of nature, the search for peace and political stability, a more just sharing in the world’s resources, and a new economic and political order that will better serve the human community at a national and international level.

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.

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 of the Church, but at the same time prepared to give the witness of their faith to the world. This concern, while it must be present in all research, is particularly important in the areas of science and technology. Universities, situated within the ambience of these cultures, will seek to harmonize local cultures with the positive contributions of modern cultures.

Therefore, it is with great trust and hope that I invite all Catholic Universities to pursue their irreplaceable task. 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 To a group of scientists I pointed out that “while reason and faith surely represent two distinct orders of knowledge, each autonomous with regard to its own methods, the two must finally converge in the discovery of a single whole reality which has its origin in God”.

Priority is to be given to those means which will facilitate aposstlica integration of human and professional education with religious values in the light of Catholic xe, in order to unite intellectual learning with the religious dimension apostlca life.

It means his effort to bring the world itself under his control by his knowledge and his labor. Its purpose is that “the Christian mind may achieve, as it were, a public, persistent and universal presence in the whole enterprise of advancing higher culture and that the students of these institutions become people outstanding in learning, ready to shoulder society’s heavier burdens and to witness the faith to the world” IIITurinp.

In ways appropriate to the different academic disciplines, all Catholic teachers are to be faithful to, and all other teachers are to respect, Catholic doctrine and morals in their research and teaching.

Wpostlica review by the Holy See 44these local or regional “Ordinances” will be valid for all Catholic Universities and other Catholic Institutes of Higher Studies in the region, except for Ecclesiastical Universities and Faculties.

It is contemplated that other Catholic Universities, that is, those not established apostljca approved in any of the above ways, with the agreement of the local ecclesiastical Authority, will make their own the General Norms and their local and regional applications, internalizing them into their governing documents, and, as far as possible, will conform their existing Statutes both to these General Norms and to their applications.

The basic mission of a University constitudin a continuous quest for truth through its research, and the preservation and communication of knowledge for the good of society.

In the communication of knowledge, emphasis is then placed on how human reason in its reflection opens to increasingly broader questions, and how the complete answer to them can only come from above through faith. Apostlic 71pp.

The Christian researcher should demonstrate the way in which human intelligence is enriched by the higher truth that comes from the Gospel: Given the close connection between research and teaching, the research qualities indicated above will have their influence on all consitucin.

These lay Catholics are responding to the Church’s call “to eccleskae present, as signs of courage and intellectual creativity, in the privileged places of culture, that is, the world of education-school and university” In ways consistent with its nature as a University, a Catholic University will contribute to the Church’s work of evangelization.

A Catholic University, therefore, is a place of research, where scholars scrutinize reality with the methods proper to each academic discipline, and so contribute to the treasury of human knowledge. AAS 72p. It is in the context of the impartial search for truth that the relationship between faith and reason is brought to light and meaning.

AAS 79p. Through teaching and research, a Catholic University offers an indispensable contribution to the Church.

Translation of “Et ex corde diligamus” in English

The last part of the quotation uses words directed to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, 10 November AAS 71p. By its very nature, each Catholic University makes an important contribution to the Church’s work of evangelization.

IIIp. For the things of the earth and the concerns of faith derive from the same God” 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.

A specific priority is the need to examine and evaluate the predominant values and norms of modern society and culture in a Christian perspective, and the responsibility to try to communicate to society those ethical and religious principles which give full meaning to human life. The mission that the Church, with great hope, entrusts to Catholic Universities holds a cultural and religious meaning of vital importance because it concerns the very future of humanity.

The General Norms are to be applied concretely at the local and regional levels by Episcopal Conferences and other Assemblies of Catholic Hierarchy 43 in conformity with the Code of Canon Law and complementary Church legislation, taking into account the Statutes of each University or Institute and, as far as possible and appropriate, civil law.

The primary mission of the Church is to preach the Gospel in such a way that a relationship between faith and life is established in each individual and in the cknstitucin context in which individuals live and act and communicate with one another.

Therefore, I desire to share with everyone my profound respect for Catholic Universities, and to express my great appreciation for the work that is being done in them in the various spheres of knowledge.

They are for me a lively and promising sign of the fecundity of the Christian mind in the heart of every culture.
