Redemptor Hominis (4 March ) | John Paul II
It was precisely this man in all the truth of his life, in his conscience, in his continual inclination to sin and at the same time in his continual aspiration to truth, the good, the beautiful, justice and love that the Second Vatican Council had before its eyes when, in outlining his situation in the modern world, it always passed from the external elements of this situation to the truth within humanity: The essential meaning of this “kingship” and “dominion” of man over the visible world, which the Creator himself gave man for his task, consists in the priority of ethics over technology, in the primacy of the person over things, and in the superiority of spirit over matter.
Every man comes into the world through being conceived in his mother’s womb and being born of his mother, and precisely on account of the mystery of the Redemption is entrusted to the solicitude of the Church. The Church does not cease to listen to his words.
It is enough to recall certain phenomena, such as the threat of pollution of the natural environment in areas of rapid industrialization, or the armed conflicts continually breaking out over and over again, or the prospectives of self-destruction through the use of atomic, hydrogen, neutron and similar weapons, or the lack enyckliki respect for the life of the unborn. He is newly created!

He remains a being that is incomprehensible for himself, his life is senseless, if love is not revealed to him, if he does not encounter love, if he does not experience it and make it his own, if he does not participate intimately in it. It is these materialisms that give encyliki to so many forms of insatiability in the human heart.
Can it be said that the Church is not alone in making this appeal? The Church lives his mystery, draws unwearyingly from it and continually seeks ways of bringing this mystery of her Master and Lord to humanity-to the peoples, the nations, the succeeding generations, and every individual human being-as if she were ever repeating, as the Apostle did: God entered the history of humanity and, as a man, became an actor in that history, one of the thousands of millions of human beings but at the same time Unique!
The Church never jipi to relive his death on the Cross and his Resurrection, which constitute the content of the Church’s daily life. The principle of solidarity, in a wide sense, must inspire the effective search for jpio institutions and mechanisms, whether in the sector of trade, where the laws of healthy competition must be allowed to lead the way, or on the level of a wider and more immediate redistribution of riches and of control over them, in order that the economically developing peoples may be able not only to satisfy their essential needs but also to advance gradually and effectively.

This is an exigency of man’s temporal welfare and of his eternal encykliii. With all the greater reason, then, it is not permissible for us, in thought, life or action, to take away from this truly most holy Sacrament its full magnitude and its essential meaning. In the Church, gathering particularly today in a special way around the Eucharist and desiring that the authentic Eucharistic community should become a sign of the gradually maturing unity of all Christians, there must a lively-felt need for penance, both in its sacramental aspectand in what concerns penance as a virtue.
In him has been revealed in a new and more wonderful way the fundamental truth concerning creation to which the Book of Genesis gives witness when it repeats several times: The Church as a human society can of course be examined and described according to the categories used by the sciences jpi regard to any human society.
Inspired by eschatological faith, the Church considers an essential, unbreakably united element of her mission this solicitude for man, for his humanity, for the future of men on earth and therefore also for the course set for the whole of development and progress.
Man therefore lives increasingly in fear. The principle of collegiality showed itself particularly relevant in the difficult postconciliar period, when the shared unanimous position of the College of the Bishops-which displayed, chiefly through the Synod, its union with Peter’s Successor-helped to dissipate doubts and at the same time indicated the correct ways for renewing the Church in her universal dimension.
The Redeemer of the enyckliki
In reality, those regimes had restricted the rights of the citizens, denying them recognition precisely of those inviolable human rights that have reached formulation on the international level in the middle of our century. We are firmly convinced that there is no programme in today’s world in which man is not invariably brought to the fore, even when the platforms of the programmes are made up of conflicting ideologies concerning the way of conceiving the world.
Since that pontificate lasted barely 33 days, it falls to me not only to continue it but in a certain sense to take it up again at the same starting point. The Church’s consciousness, enlightened and supported by the Holy Spirit and fathoming more and more deeply both her divine mystery and her human mission, and even her human weaknesses-this consciousness is and must remain the first source of the Church’s love, as love in turn helps to strengthen and deepen her consciousness.
In presenting the complete picture of the People of God and recalling the place among that people held not only by priests but also by the laity, not only by the representatives of the Hierarchy but also by those of the Institutes of Consecrated Life, the Second Vatican Council did not deduce this picture merely from a sociological premise. Man often seems to see no other meaning in his natural environment than what serves for immediate use and consumption.
The good has its source in Wisdom and Love. What shall we say at this point with regard to the specialists in the various disciplines, those who represent the natural sciences and letters, doctors, jurists, artists and technicians, teachers at various levels and with different specializations?
Here we touch indirectly on the mystery of the divine “economy” which linked salvation and grace with the Cross. These differences have causes in history, but they also have strong ethical effects. This attitude seems to fit the special needs of our times.
The object of her care is man in his unique unrepeatable human reality, which keeps intact the image and likeness of God himself Pulled by manifold attractions, he is constantly forced to choose among them and to renounce some. Therefore, if we wish to keep in mind this community of the People of God, which is so vast and so extremely differentiated, we must see first and foremost Christ saying in a way to each member jpi the community: Are we of the twentieth century not convinced of the over poweringly eloquent words of the Apostle of the Gentiles concerning the “creation that has been groaning in travail together until now” 43 and “waits with eager longing for the revelation of the sons of God” 44the creation that “was subjected to futility”?
She rereads them continually.
