Pope urges students to engage culture

Vatican, Dec. 14, 2007 (CWNews.com) - Pope Benedict XVI (bio - news) has urged university students to uphold the faith in a European culture whose thoughts have been "disengaged from God."

The Holy Father spoke to Rome's university students on Thursday evening in the Vatican basilica, after a Mass celebrated by Cardinal Camillo Ruini. He encouraged them to approach the future with confidence, recognizing that the faith is always alive. As evidence of the attractive power of Catholic truth, he pointed out that 150 students from Rome's universities have accepted the faith this year, and are planning to be confirmed at Pentecost 2008.

Tracing some of the thoughts that he presented in his encyclical Spe Salvi, the Pope said that Europe today is influenced by ideological trends formed in the 17th century, "according to which human progress is the work of science and technology, while faith concerns only the salvation of the soul." These trends, he said, led to a belief that economic and political measures can be enough to bring about "a just society in which peace, freedom and equality reign."

In practice, the Pope continued, those ideological trends have had a damaging impact, because the human soul is not shaped simply by economic and political factors, and "technological progress does not correspond to the moral development of mankind." Early in the 21st century, he argued, society has recognized that ideologies can be destructive, and the blind pursuit of technological conquest can be dangerous to society. Thus the time is ripe for a new assertion of Christian claims, he told his young audience.

Thy Will be done, Holy Father. I pray that the wishes and prayers of the Holy Father be risen like incense upon the Throne of The Most High and be heard like sweet melody as the songs of the Choirs of Cherubim in Heaven. The Vicar of Christ Jesus speaks true, this article has hit me very profoundly. And specially in these trying times when our faith are attacked by the lies of devils, and demons who spout heretical lies looking for the condemnation of many souls. Faith, is like a rock on the temple floor. Our faith must be stern, unyielding, and firm to the path that it leads us, which is to the Heart of the Christ. Lord Jesus Christ, who is the WAY, TRUTH, and LIFE and only through HIM can we be in union with the Almighty Father.

I pray for all those whose faith are tempted, and attacked on a daily basis. May they hold strong to their morals. Though we all have inequities, and sins that we accumulate on a daily basis, may our hearts seek and ask for penance and forgiveness so that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ, the Lord.

Through the Holy Mother the Church, This I Pray. May It be heard, like sweet incense, onto the Throne of the Most High.

The veil between heaven and earth is dissipating, getting thinner and thinner with each passing day, with each spoken prayer calling out for My intervention, My presence. Your prayers have ascended to My throne with a smell of sweet incense.They are joining with many prayers of others, filling the Bowls of Heaven.
Acts 10:3-5
