IIITurinp. AAS 18p. In particular, it is recommended that by means of appropriate studies, the impact of modern technology and especially of the mass media on persons, the family, and the institutions and whole of modem culture be studied deeply. In a word, being both a Consitucin and Catholic, it must be both a community of scholars representing various branches of human knowledge, and an academic institution in which Catholicism is vitally present and operative” By its very nature, each Catholic University makes an important contribution to the Church’s work of evangelization.
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.
Translation of “Et ex corde diligamus” in English
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. 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.
It includes the fact that by improving customs and institutions he renders social life more human both within the family and in the civic community. AAS 59p. While it is true that the Gospel cannot be identified with any particular culture and transcends all cultures, it is also true that “the Kingdom which the Gospel proclaims is lived by men and women who are profoundly linked to a culture, and the building up of the Kingdom cannot avoid borrowing the elements of human culture or cultures Among these associations the mission of The International Federation of Catholic Universities, founded by the Holy See 34is particularly to be remembered.
Those involved in pastoral ministry will encourage teachers and students to become more aware of their responsibility towards those who are suffering physically or spiritually.
AAS 68pp. Pastoral ocrde is that activity of the University which offers the members of the university community an opportunity to integrate religious and moral principles with their academic study and non-academic activities, thus integrating faith with life.
They serve the Church through research done in a way that respects theological method.
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 80pp. In this way a University can contribute further to the development of a true Christian anthropology, founded on the person of Christ, which will bring the dynamism of the creation and redemption to bear on reality and on the correct solution to the problems of life.
The Holy See anticipates further fruitful collaboration with this Federation. Also, any privileges granted up to this day by the Holy See whether to physical or moral persons that are contrary to this present Constitution are abolished. Since the beginning of this Pontificate, I have shared these ideas and sentiments with my closest collaborators, the Cardinals, with the Congregation for Catholic Education, and with men and women of culture throughout the world.
It has always been recognized as an incomparable centre of creativity and dissemination of knowledge for the good of humanity. At the same time, since theology seeks an understanding of revealed truth whose authentic interpretation is entrusted to the Bishops of the Church 29it is intrinsic to the principles and methods of their research and teaching in their academic discipline that theologians respect the authority of the Bishops, and assent to Catholic doctrine according to the degree of authority with which it is taught Evangelization means “bringing the Good News into all the strata of humanity, and through its influence transforming humanity from within and making it new By means of a kind of universal humanism a Catholic University is completely dedicated to the research of all aspects of truth in their essential connection with the supreme Truth, who is God.
In fact, the dialogue of the Church with the cultures of our times is that vital area where “the future of the Church and of the world is being played out as we conclude the twentieth century” 4. It has proper principles and methods which define it as a branch of knowledge. In a Catholic University, research necessarily includes a the search for an integration of knowledge, b a dialogue between faith and reason, c an ethical concern, and d a theological perspective.
It is necessary to work towards a higher synthesis of knowledge, in which alone lies the possibility of satisfying that thirst for truth which is profoundly inscribed on the heart of the human person” While this Document specifically concerns Catholic Universities, it is also meant to include all Catholic Institutions of higher education engaged in instilling the Gospel message of Christ in souls and cultures. Through the encounter which it establishes between the unfathomable richness of the salvific message of the Gospel and the variety and immensity of the fields of knowledge in which that richness is incarnated by it, a Catholic University enables the Church to institute an incomparably fertile dialogue with people of every culture.

The Catholic University in the Church apostluca Beloved Brothers and Sisters, my encouragement and my trust go with you in your weighty daily task that becomes ever more important, more urgent and necessary on behalf constitucn Evangelization for the future of culture and of all cultures. Most especially, they are challenged to continue the search for truth and for meaning throughout dcclesiae lives, since “the human spirit must be cultivated in such a way that there results a growth in its ability to wonder, to understand, to contemplate, to make personal judgments, and to develop a religious, moral, and social sense” As a natural expression of the Catholic identity of the University, the university community should give a practical demonstration of its faith in its daily activity, with important moments of reflection and of prayer.
Freedom in research and teaching is recognized and respected according to the principles and methods of each individual discipline, so long aposflica the rights of the individual and of the community are preserved within the confines of the truth and the common good It is open to all human experience and is ready to dialogue with and learn from any culture.
Even when they do not enter directly into the internal governance of the University, Bishops “should be seen not as external agents but as participants apostlca the life of the Catholic University” The Presidents of these colleges will never implement the tenets of Ex Corde Ecclesiae unless they are forced.
