Pope asks Catholic universities to close the gap between faith and culture

2009-11-19

Benedict XVI
“This meeting gives me the opportunity to highlight once more the irreplaceable mission that ecclesiastical faculties and Catholic universities have in society.”

The pope explained that pontifical universities have the mission of bridging the gap between faith and culture.

In order to do so, he advised them to seriously study Catholic doctrine and theology without losing sight of other fields of knowledge.

The theologian pope also warned theology professors and students that if the study of God does not go hand in hand with prayer and contemplation, it would become a vain intellectual exercise.

Card. Zenon Grocholewski
Prefect, Congregation for Catholic Education
“Ecclesiastical academic institutions and Catholic universities renew their commitment to working together, each one with their own methods, to form men who seek the Truth.”

The Catholic Church is the organization with the most universities in the world. There are some 1,300 Catholic universities and 400 ecclesiastical faculties dedicated to the formation of theologians and philosophers.
