POPE STRESSES THAT CATHOLIC UNIVERSITIES MUST COMBINE FAITH AND SCIENCE

    VATICAN CITY, 14 (NE) Pope John Paul II received yesterday participants in the Jubilee of Sacred Heart Catholic University, coming from the university's bases in Milan, Rome, Brescia and Piacenza. The pilgrimage falls on the 40th anniversary of the death of its founder, Fr. Agostino Gemelli, and on the 80th anniversary of the foundation of the university in December 1920.

    Addressing professors and students from the university, the Holy Father recalled the Apostolic Constitution "Ex corde Ecclesiae" -directed to Catholic universities-, stating that "university pastoral is that activity from the University which offers to the members of the community the opportunity to coordinate academic studies and 'para-academic' activities with religious and moral values, integrating faith and life."

    Afterwards, the Pope stressed that "the Christian scholar, professor and student, distinguishes himself for his capacity to combine the rigorousness of scientific investigation with the certainty of faith in Jesus Christ, Eternal Word of God, who is the Truth in its fullest sense."
