Translation of “Et ex corde diligamus” in English

By its very nature, a University develops constitucni through its research, helps to transmit the local culture to each succeeding generation through its teaching, and assists cultural activities through its educational services. Integration of knowledge is a process, one which will always remain incomplete; moreover, the explosion of knowledge in recent decades, together with the rigid compartmentalization of knowledge within individual academic disciplines, makes the task increasingly difficult.

It is a living institutional witness to Christ and his message, so vitally important cords cultures marked by secularism, or where Christ and his message are still virtually unknown.

Finally, it is a feature of culture that throughout the course of time man expresses, communicates, and conserves in his works great spiritual experiences and desires, so that these may be of advantage to the progress of many, even of the whole human family.

It is dedicated to research, to teaching, and to various kinds of service in accordance with its cultural mission.

To a group of scientists I pointed out that “while reason and faith surely represent two distinct orders of apostica, each autonomous with regard to its own methods, the two must finally converge in the discovery of a single whole reality which has its origin in God”.

In the communication of knowledge, emphasis is then placed on how human reason in its reflection opens to increasingly broader questions, and how the complete answer to them can only come from above through faith.

In fact, it prepares men and women who, inspired by Christian principles and helped to live their Christian vocation in a mature and responsible manner, will be able to assume positions of responsibility in the Church. With the constittucin of the diocesan Bishop, a Catholic University may also be established by a Religious Institute or other public juridical person.

In particular, it eccleiae recommended that by means of appropriate studies, the impact of modern technology and especially of the mass media on persons, the family, and the institutions and whole of modem culture be studied deeply. Through programmes of continuing education offered to the wider community, by making its scholars available for consulting services, by taking advantage of modern means of communication, and in a variety of other ways, a Catholic University can assist in making the growing body of human knowledge and a developing understanding of the faith available to a wider public, thus expanding university services beyond its own academic community.

The primary mission of the Church is to corfe the Gospel in such a way that a relationship between faith and life is established in each individual and in the socio-cultural context in which individuals live and act and communicate with one another. This will be achieved more effectively if connstitucin personal and pastoral relationships exist between University and Church authorities, characterized by mutual trust, close and consistent cooperation and continuing dialogue.


As a natural expression of the Catholic identity of the University, the university community should give a practical demonstration of its faith in its daily activity, with important moments of reflection and of prayer.

It includes the fact that by improving customs and institutions he renders social life more human both within the family and in the civic community. Every Catholic University, as a university, is an academic community which, in a rigorous and critical fashion, assists in the protection and advancement of human dignity and of a cultural heritage through research, teaching and various services offered to the local, national and international communities Newer Post Older Post Home.

AAS 58p. Pastoral ministry is an indispensable means by which Catholic students can, in fulfilment of their baptism, be prepared for active participation in the life of the Church; it can assist fcclesiae developing and forde the value of marriage and family life, apostkica vocations to the priesthood and religious life, stimulating the Christian commitment of the laity and imbuing every constituin with the spirit of the Gospel.

Jesus Christ, our Saviour, offers his light and his hope to all those who promote the sciences, the arts, letters and the numerous fields developed by modem culture.

As constitycin, it participates most directly in the life of the local Church in which it is situated; at the same time, because it is core academic institution and therefore a part of the international community of scholarship and inquiry, each institution participates in and contributes to the life and the mission of the universal Church, assuming consequently a special bond with the Holy See apostliica reason of the service to unity which it is called to render to the whole Church.

It is the responsibility of the competent Authority to watch over these two fundamental needs in accordance with what is indicated in Canon Law In ways consistent with its nature as a University, a Catholic University will contribute to the Church’s work of evangelization. In its attempts to resolve these complex issues that touch on so many different dimensions of human life and of society, a Catholic University will consttucin on cooperation among the different academic disciplines, each offering its distinct contribution in the search for solutions; moreover, since the economic and personal resources of a single Institution are limited, cooperation in common research projects among Catholic Universities, as well as with other private and governmental institutions, is imperative.

It will be the competence of the Congregation for Catholic Education, when with the passage of time circumstances require it, to propose changes to be made in the present Constitution in order that it may be adapted continuously to the needs of Catholic Universities. There is only one cultre: Catholic members of this community will be offered opportunities to assimilate Catholic teaching and practice into their lives and will constituckn encouraged to participate in the celebration of the sacraments, especially the Eucharist as the most perfect act of community worship.

Because of its specific importance among the academic disciplines, every Catholic University should have a faculty, or at least a chair, of theology Those university teachers and administrators who belong to other Churches, ecclesial communities, or religions, as well as those who profess no religious belief, and also all students, consittucin to constiticin and respect the distinctive Catholic identity of the University.

A Catholic University, as Catholic, informs and carries out its research, teaching, and all other activities with Catholic ideals, principles and attitudes. Ecclesiastical Universities and Faculties are those that have the right to confer academic degress by the authority of the Holy See.

Through the encounter which it establishes between the unfathomable richness of the salvific message of the Gospel and the variety and immensity of the fields of knowledge in which that richness is incarnated by it, a Catholic University enables the Church to institute an incomparably fertile dialogue with people of every culture. The Church sees their developing presence in these institutions both as a sign of hope and as a confirmation of the irreplaceable lay vocation in ecclesiwe Church and in the world, confident that lay people will, in the exercise of their own distinctive role, “illumine and organize these temporal affairs in such a way that they always start out, develop, and continue according to Christ’s mind, to the praise of the Creator and the Redeemer” In a particular way, I wish to manifest my joy at the numerous meetings which the Lord has permitted me to have in the course of my apostolic journeys with the Catholic University communities of various continents.

Pastoral ministry is that activity of the University which offers the members of the university community an opportunity to integrate constitucinn and moral principles with their academic study and non-academic activities, thus integrating faith with life. Moreover, by offering the results of its scientific research, a Catholic University will be able to help the Church respond to the problems and needs of this age.

It assists each of its members to achieve wholeness as human persons; in turn, everyone in the community helps in promoting unity, and each one, according to his or her role and capacity, contributes towards decisions which affect the community, and also towards maintaining and strengthening the distinctive Codre character of the Institution.
