Indeed, it is faith that allows individuals to give consummate expression to ehciclica own freedom. Among these lands, India has a special place.
Only within this radius and dimension of the Church as the Body of Christ, which continually develops in space and time, can one think and speak of “what is lacking” in the sufferings of Christ. Let us re-read dolris this biblical account which, despite its archaic structure and its extreme simplicity, has much to aalvifici us.
When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield to you its strength; you shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth’. Today, as the Gospel gradually comes into contact with cultural worlds which once lay beyond Christian influence, there are new tasks of inculturation, which mean that our generation faces problems not unlike those faced by the Church in the first centuries.
Pope John Paul II
Although times change and knowledge increases, it is possible to discern a core of philosophical insight within the history of thought as a whole. Everything has now reached its complete fulfilment.
In the Second Letter to Timothy we read: This also highlights the salvidici and human nature of the Church. 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.
It happened rather in the depths of human souls, and it was a meeting of creature and Creator. When he heeds the deepest yearnings of the heart, every man must make his own the words of truth expressed by Saint Augustine: Cain tries to cover up his crime with a lie.

It is especially consoling to note—and also accurate in accordance with the Gospel and history—that at the side of Christ, in the first and most exalted place, there is always his Mother through the exemplary testimony that she bears by her whole life to this particular Gospel of suffering. Suffering is something which is still wider than sickness, more complex and at the same time still more deeply rooted in humanity itself. Among the early examples of this, Origen is certainly outstanding.
The more a person is threatened by sin, the heavier the structures of sin which today’s world brings with it, the greater is the eloquence which human suffering possesses in itself. Therefore every threat to human dignity and life must necessarily be felt in the Church’s very heart; it cannot but affect her at the core of her encicica in the Redemptive Incarnation of the Son of God, and engage her in her mission of swlvifici the Gospel of life in all the world and to every creature cf.
Man is a king. From this, certain principles will emerge as useful reference-points in the attempt to establish the correct link between the two orders of knowledge.

But not a hair of your head will perish.
Fides et Ratio (14 September ) | John Paul II
Woe is me, one of the poor children of Eve, far from God, what did I set out to do and what have I accomplished? Yet the Thomistic and neo-Thomistic revival was not the only sign of a resurgence of philosophical thought in culture of Christian inspiration. Cultures are not only not diminished by this encounter; rather, they are prompted to open themselves to the newness of the Gospel’s truth and to be stirred by this truth to develop in new ways.
We must above all accept the light salviffici Revelation not only insofar as it expresses the transcendent order of justice but also insofar as it illuminates this order with Love, as the definitive source of everything that exists. O death, where is your victory? Who in the end could forge anew the paths of experience and thought which have yielded the treasures of human wisdom and religion? Finally, this parable, through its essential content, will enter into those disturbing words of the Final Judgment, noted by Matthew in his Gospel: Cain was “very angry” and his countenance “fell” because “the Lord had regard for Abel and his offering” Gen 4: In brief, human beings attain truth by way of reason because, enlightened by faith, they discover the deeper meaning of all things and most especially of their own existence.
It is this that Saint Augustine teaches when he writes: Many centres in support of life, or similar institutions, are sponsored by individuals and groups which, with admirable dedication and sacrifice, offer moral and material support to mothers who are in difficulty and are tempted to have recourse to abortion.
The only-begotten Son was given to humanity primarily to protect man against this definitive evil and against definitive suffering.
