A human and Christian intelligence for today
We have to dedicate ourselves to the mission of human and Christian intelligence in the world of today. It is an open intelligence that has is not afraid of wide horizons because it fears the narrowness of the mind. It is a deep intelligence, that is not afraid to go to the root of matters because it fears superficiality. It is an intelligence that moves, that is not afraid to live a yearning for truth because it fears the slavery of immediacy and appearances. It is a brave intelligence that is not afraid of being non-conformist because it fears generalized opinions without discernment. It is an intelligence faithful to what drives it from within because it fears what could prevent its capability to go on. It is a creative intelligence, that is not afraid to explore new ground and new areas of knowledge, but fears intellectual sterility and the sleeping of intelligence.
