EX CORDE ECCLESIAE by Francisco Javier Sandoval Laura on Prezi

In ways consistent with its nature as a University, a Catholic University will contribute to the Church’s work of evangelization. In fact, it prepares men ecdlesiae women who, inspired by Christian principles and helped to live their Christian vocation in a mature and responsible manner, will be able to assume positions of responsibility in the Church. 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.

With every other University it shares that gaudium de veritate, so precious to Saint Augustine, which is that joy of searching for, discovering and communicating apostlicaa 2 in every field of knowledge.

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.

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. A Catholic University also has the responsibility, to the degree that it is able, to help to promote the development of the emerging nations. IIIp. Newer Post Older Post Home. A Catholic University must become more attentive to the cultures of the world of today, and to the various cultural traditions existing within the Church in a way that will promote a continuous and profitable dialogue between the Gospel and modern society.

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. Theology has its legitimate place in the University alongside constiucin disciplines.

AAS 72pp. Traditional cultures are to be defended in their identity, helping them to receive modern values without sacrificing their own heritage, which is a wealth for the whole of the human family. For, “What is at stake is the very meaning of scientific and technological research, of social life and of culture, but, on an even more profound level, ecclesoae is at stake is the very meaning of the human person” Courses in Catholic doctrine are to be made available to all students In its service to society, a Catholic University will relate especially to the academic, cultural and scientific world of the region ecclesise which it is located.


Ex Corde Ecclesiae (August 15, ) | John Paul II

Men constifucin women of science will truly aid humanity only if they preserve ‘the sense of the transcendence of the human person over the world and of God over the human person” For the things of the earth and the concerns of faith derive from the same God” Each individual discipline is studied in a systematic manner; moreover, the various disciplines are brought into dialogue for their mutual enhancement.

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. Service to Church and Society 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” My hope is that these prescriptions, based on the teaching of Vatican Council II and the directives of the Code of Canon Law, will enable Catholic Universities and other Apostlcia of higher studies to fulfil their indispensable mission in the new advent of grace that is opening up to the new Millennium.

The last part of the quotation uses words directed to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, 10 November 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 of the non-academic staff are vital for the identity and life of the University.

Following the example of Christ, they will be vonstitucin attentive to the poorest and to cord who suffer economic, social, cultural or religious injustice. Universities, situated within the ambience of these cultures, will seek to harmonize local cultures with the positive contributions of modern cultures. 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.

AAS 59p. Every Catholic University, without ceasing to be a University, has a relationship to the Church that is essential to its institutional identity.

A xe community concerned with promoting the Institution’s Catholic character will be conscious of this pastoral dimension and sensitive to the ways in which it can have an influence on all university activities. Non-Catholic members are required to respect the Catholic character of the University, while the University in turn respects their religious liberty The constitucih community of many Catholic institutions includes members of other Churches, ecclesial communities and religions, and also those who profess no religious belief.

Translation of “Et ex corde diligamus” in English

A Catholic University may also be established by other ecclesiastical or lay persons; such a University may refer to itself as a Catholic University only with the consent of the competent ecclesiastical Authority, in accordance with the conditions upon which both parties shall agree Apostlida renewal requested of Catholic Universities will make them better able to respond to the task of bringing the message of Christ to man, to society, to the various cultures: Jesus Christ, our Saviour, offers his light cordd his hope to all those who promote the sciences, the arts, letters and the numerous fields developed by modem culture.


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 eccoesiae the Gospel and culture.

Therefore, all the sons and daughters of the Church should become aware of their mission and discover how the strength of the Gospel can penetrate and regenerate the mentalities and dominant values that inspire individual cultures, as well as the opinions and mental attitudes that are derived from it” 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 It has always been recognized as an incomparable centre of creativity and dissemination of knowledge for the good of humanity.

They are for me a lively and promising sign of the fecundity of the Christian mind in the heart of every culture. Integration of knowledge is a process, one which will always remain incomplete; moreover, the explosion of knowledge in recent decades, together with the rigid compartmentalization of knowledge within individual academic disciplines, makes the task increasingly difficult.

When the academic community includes members of other Churches, ecclesial communities or religions, their initiatives for reflection and prayer in accordance with their own beliefs are to be respected. The present Document is addressed especially to those who conduct Catholic Universities, to the respective academic communities, to all those who have an interest in them, particularly the Bishops, Religious Congregations and ecclesial Institutions, and to the numerous laity who are committed to the great mission of higher education.

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” The Church, accepting “the legitimate autonomy of human culture and especially of the sciences”, recognizes the academic freedom of scholars in each discipline in accordance with its own principles and proper methods 28and within the confines of the truth and the common good.

Scientific and technological discoveries create an enormous economic and industrial growth, but they also inescapably require the correspondingly necessary search for meaning in order to guarantee that the new discoveries be used for the authentic good of individuals and of human society as a whole. Finally, it is a feature of culture that throughout the course of time man expresses, communicates, and conserves in his works great spiritual experiences and desires, so that these may be of advantage to the progress of many, even of the whole human family.
