Pope to International Theological Commission: “Monotheism is not source of violence, but of peace”

2011-12-02

Benedict XVI
“The work of this session has coincided with the first week of Advent, a time that reminds us how every theologian is called to be a man of Advent, a witness of watchful waiting, which illuminates the ways  of understanding the Word that became flesh.”

The pope added that to achieve a strong relationship between faith and reason, the Church needs theologians who are prepared and faithful. The International Theological Commission was established after the Second Vatican Council,  as a way to extend the work carried out by experts.
The Council advises the pope on different issues, as requested by the pope. In fact, Joseph Ratzinger was a member of the Commission until pope Paul VI named him Archbishop of Munich.
