First, then, let us consider the links between faith and philosophy in the course of history. The great Pope revisited and developed the First Vatican Council’s teaching on the relationship between faith and reason, showing how philosophical thinking contributes in fundamental ways to faith and theological learning.

In acting ethically, according to a free and rightly tuned will, the human person sets foot upon the path to happiness and moves towards perfection.

From the time the Gospel was first preached, the Church has known the process of encounter and engagement with cultures.
