When they think about “the Church,”
Catholics typically see two faces.
There’s the face of the institution,
which is about infrastructure and
resources, rules and regulations, and a
hierarchical chain of command.
We’re All Franciscans NowWe’re All Franciscans Now
…Then there’s the Church of the spirit,
a humble and simple community of
equals with a special love for the least
of this world. Ideally the two go
together, but in any case they’re
distinct.
We’re All Franciscans NowWe’re All Franciscans Now
By taking the name “Francis,” the pope has
essentially said that the second face of the
Church must shine through in a new way.
In other words, Francis has offered a whole
program of governance, an entire
ecclesiastical vision, in a single word.”

“We have to avoid the spiritual

In other words, Francis wants to be
an evangelizing pope, someone who
can reach out beyond the confines
of the already convinced and
represent Christianity to the wider
world.
Have a Sense of HumorHave a Sense of Humor
He knows that doing that with a smile
rather than a frown is likely to be a more
winning missionary strategy, and he’s
comfortable enough in his own skin to
break the formal mode of the papacy and
come off the cuff with some humor.

The Holy Spirit is also the one “who
creates unity from these differences,
not in ‘equality,’ but in harmony. I
remember the Father of the Church
who described him thus: Ipse
harmonia est.

The Paraclete, who gives different
charisms to each of us, unites us in
this community of the Church,

and him, the Holy Spirit.”

Those words suggest that Francis is
likely to be a pope who stresses the
value of unity, trying to push Catholics
beyond their internal differences as
well as toward greater cooperation with
other Christian denominations.

CONTEXT OF THE ENCYCLICAL
WHAT IS SECULARISM?WHAT IS SECULARISM?
"Secular""Secular"
today stands intoday stands in
opposition toopposition to
"religious"."religious".
According to this
usage, something
is secular when it
can be
categorized with
the worldly, civil, non-
religious sphere of human life.
According to this usage,
something is secular when it is
not worshipped,
when it is not
venerated, and
when it is open for
critique, judgment,
and replacement.
In English, the
term
“secularism”
was coined by
George Jacob
Holyoake in
1841.
Three essential principles
(1) The improvement of
this life by material
means.
Three essential principles
(2) That science is the
available Providence of
man.
Three essential principles
(3) That it is good to do good.
Whether there be other good or
not, the good of the present life
is good, and it is good to seek
that good.”
Characteristics of Secularism:
1. It can indicate the autonomy
of earthly realities and the
separation between the
Kingdom of God and the
kingdom of Caesar.
Characteristics of Secularism:
2. Secularism supports the
individual against the pressure of
the group and the individual
conscience against the dogma of
the group. In this sense it promotes
individualism.
Characteristics of Secularism:
3. According to Virgilius Ferm in his
Encyclopedia of Religion secularism is
“a variety of utilitarian social ethic
which seeks human improvement
without reference to religion and
exclusively by means of human reason,
science and social organization.
Characteristics of Secularism:
…It has developed into a positive
and widely adopted outlook which
aims to direct all activities and
institutions by a non-religious
concern for the goods of the
present life and for social well-
being.”
Characteristics of Secularism:
…Secularism brings in its train
relativism. Nothing is absolute.
No truth or morality is valid for
all and for all time.
Characteristics of Secularism:
4. It is a morality that is based on
rational considerations regarding
human well-being in this world, to
the exclusion of considerations
relating to God or the afterlife.
Characteristics of Secularism:
5. Indifference to religion is
presupposed. Religion is not
seen necessary or even useful.
Secularism brings along
with it individualism,
relativism, materialism
and agnosticism.
Fundamentalism as found in all religious
persuasion is characterized by:
1. Extreme conservatism in
doctrine, deriving from
literalist interpretations of
their holy books or/and
sacred customs.
Fundamentalism as found in all religious
persuasion is characterized by:
2. Intolerance of others, both
co-religionists not belonging
to their group and much
more of other religions.
Fundamentalism as found in all religious
persuasion is characterized by:
3. Inability to see any good
from others outside of their
group, therefore very
inward looking.
Fundamentalism as found in all religious
persuasion is characterized by:
4. There is no openness to
dialogue and working
together.

love itself brings enlightenment. (Art. 26)
