Pope: Scientific knowledge does not satisfy human's spiritual quest


"It is with great joy that I announce that on November 24th, a Consistory will be held, where I will nominated six new members to the College of Cardinals.”

The soon to be cardinals are from the U.S, Lebanon, India, Nigeria, Colombia and the Philippines. In addition to advising the Pope, they also have the responsibility of voting in an eventual conclave.

Since the Vatican launched the "Year of Faith” on October 11th, the Pope talked about what exactly it means to have faith, especially nowadays, where it seems that humanity is passing through a  'spiritual desert.'

"Before all else, faith is a divine gift which enables us to open our hearts and minds to God's world and through Baptism to share in his divine life within the community of the Church.”

He explained that the material world, though appealing is misleading. Even though
scientific knowledge is necessary, he said it's not enough satisfy the spiritual quest of humans.

"Yet faith is also a profoundly human act, engaging our intelligence and freedom. When we welcome God's invitation and gift, our lives and the world around us are transformed.”

Among those in attendance was a group from Panama, that gave the Pope three images of St. Mary L'Antigua, the Patroness of Panama.
