The courage of intellectual work
The current challenges not only require a deep knowledge of complex realities, but also the courage given by intelligence to resist the temptation of simplistic topics or over popular slogans. In the intellectual work there is endurance of reason and faith. It is certainly a long term task, but we know that intellectual work requires a free spirit which does not run away from difficulties, but follow the exigent path of shared reflection.
