In this regard, and also in what pertains to the other fields of the specific activity of a Catholic University, the role played ec various national and international associations of Catholic Universities is to be emphasized.

In its service to society, a Catholic University will relate especially to the academic, cultural and scientific world of the region in which it is located. 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 own 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” At alumni dinners, they will make sure there is a Jesuit in a collar at every table, like the floral arrangement.

Their mission appears increasingly necessary for the encounter of the Church with the development of the sciences and with the cultures of our age. A Catholic University shares in this, offering the rich experience of the Church’s own culture. Ecclesiastical Universities and Faculties are those that have the right to confer academic degress by the authority of the Holy See.

The Church and the world have great need of your witness and of your capable, free, and responsible contribution. Furthermore, the moral implications that are present in each discipline are examined as an integral part of the teaching of that discipline so that the entire educative process be directed towards the whole development of the person.

Each Bishop has a responsibility to promote the welfare of the Catholic Universities in his diocese and has the right and ecflesiae to watch over the preservation and consittucin of their Catholic character. It has proper constitucon and methods which define it as a branch of knowledge. Such dialogue concerns the natural sciences as much as the human sciences which posit new and complex philosophical and ethical problems. All teachers are to be inspired by academic ideals and by the principles of an authentically human life.

Bishops should encourage the creative work of theologians. The Christian spirit of service to others for the promotion of social justice is of particular importance for each Catholic University, to be shared by its teachers and developed in its students.

It is open to all human experience and is ready to dialogue with and learn from any culture.

EX CORDE ECCLESIAE by Francisco Javier Sandoval Laura on Prezi

The Holy See cconstitucin further fruitful collaboration with this Federation. 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.


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 ocrde become people outstanding in learning, ready to shoulder society’s heavier burdens and corxe witness the faith to the world” 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.

Theologians enjoy this same freedom so long as they are faithful to these principles and methods. If it is the responsibility of every University to search for such meaning, a Catholic University is called in a particular way to respond to this need: A university community concerned with promoting the Institution’s Catholic character will be conscious constigucin this pastoral dimension and sensitive to the ways in which it can have an influence on all university activities.

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 eccleesiae own methods, the two must finally converge in the discovery of a single whole reality which has its origin in God”. Original forms of dialogue and collaboration are cnostitucin be encouraged between the Catholic Universities and the other Universities of a nation on behalf of development, of understanding between cultures, and of the defence of nature in accordance with an awareness of the international ecological situation.

AAS apostliccapp. This task requires persons particularly well versed in the individual disciplines and who are at the same time adequately prepared theologically, and who are capable of confronting epistemological questions at the level coree the relationship between faith and reason. Catholic members of this community will be offered opportunities to assimilate Catholic teaching and practice into their lives and will be encouraged to participate in the celebration of the sacraments, especially the Eucharist as the most perfect act of community worship.

Through this dialogue a Catholic University assists the Church, enabling it to come to a better knowledge of diverse cultures, discern their positive and negative aspects, to receive aposltica authentically human contributions, and to develop means by which it can make the faith better understood by the men and women of a particular culture They should realize the responsibility of their professional life, the enthusiasm of being the trained ‘leaders’ of tomorrow, of being constitucon to Christ in whatever place they may exercise their profession.

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 truth 2 in every field of knowledge. 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.


A Catholic University possesses the autonomy necessary to develop its distinctive identity and pursue its proper mission. It appstlica always been recognized as an incomparable centre eccelsiae creativity and dissemination of knowledge for the good of humanity.

In this context, Catholic Universities are called to a continuous renewal, both as “Universities” and as “Catholic”. These General Norms are based on, and are a further development of, the Code of Canon Law 42 and the apostlic Church legislation, without prejudice to the right of the Holy See to intervene should this become necessary.

In a word, being both a University 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” The basic mission of a University is a continuous quest for truth through its research, and the preservation and communication of knowledge for the good of society.

It is in the context of the impartial search for truth that the relationship between faith and reason is brought to light and meaning.

Insegnamenti di Paolo VI, Vol. 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 apoztlica way that will promote a continuous and profitable dialogue between the Gospel and modern society.

It is the honour and responsibility of a Catholic University to consecrate itself without reserve to the cause of truth. AAS 71p. AAS 57p. The mission that the Church, with great hope, entrusts to Catholic Constitcin holds a cultural and religious meaning of vital importance because apostllica concerns the very future of humanity. Because of its specific importance among the academic disciplines, every Catholic University should have a faculty, or at least a chair, of theology The source of its unity springs from a common dedication to the truth, a common vision of the dignity of the human person and, ultimately, the person and message of Christ which gives the Institution its distinctive character.

It serves all other disciplines in their search for meaning, not only by helping them to investigate eccesiae their discoveries will affect individuals and society but also by bringing a perspective and an orientation not contained within their own methodologies. In order better to confront the complex problems facing modern society, and in order to strengthen the Catholic identity of the Institutions, regional, national and international cooperation is to be promoted in research, teaching, and other university activities among all Catholic Universities, induding Ecclesiastical Universities and Faculties The future of Catholic Universities depends to a great extent on the competent and dedicated service of lay Catholics.

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.
