VATICANO (ACI/EWTN Noticias) - El Santo Padre se艅al贸 que "vuestras reflexiones atestiguan que la Revelaci贸n de Dios constituye realmente una Buena Nueva para todos los hombres. 藝Dios no es una amenaza para el ser humano! La fe en el Dios 煤nico y tres veces santo no es y nunca puede ser generadora de violencia e intolerancia".

"Al contrario, su car谩cter, altamente racional le confiere una dimensi贸n universal, capaz de unir a los hombres de buena voluntad. Por otra parte, la Revelaci贸n definitiva de Dios en Jesucristo ha hecho imposible cualquier recurso a la violencia 'en el nombre de Dios'. Precisamente por su rechazo de la violencia, por haber derrotado al mal con el bien, con su sangre en la cruz, Jes煤s ha reconciliado a los hombres con Dios y entre ellos".

El Papa explic贸 luego que "auscultar, discernir e interpretar, con la ayuda del Esp铆ritu Santo, las m煤ltiples voces de nuestro tiempo y valorarlas a la luz de la palabra divina, a fin de que la Verdad revelada pueda ser mejor percibida, mejor entendida y expresada en forma m谩s adecuada".

Los te贸logos son, por tanto, "pioneros del di谩logo de la Iglesia con las culturas; un di谩logo, al mismo tiempo, cr铆tico y ben茅volo que debe favorecer la acogida de la Palabra de Dios por parte de los hombres, de toda naci贸n, raza, pueblo y lengua".

El Papa resalt贸 asimismo que el concepto de paz ha sido el hilo conductor de la reflexi贸n sobre la Doctrina Social de la Iglesia cuyo objetivo es "traducir en lo concreto de la vida social el amor de Dios por el ser humano que se manifest贸 en Jesucristo... Y la Iglesia tiene que vivir, en primer lugar dentro de s铆, el mensaje social que lleva al mundo".

"Las relaciones fraternales entre los creyentes, la autoridad como servicio, el compartir con los pobres: todos estos rasgos que caracterizan la vida eclesial desde sus or铆genes, pueden y deben constituir un modelo vivo y atractivo para las diversas comunidades humanas, desde la familia a la sociedad civil".

"Ese testimonio -recalc贸 el Pont铆fice- pertenece al Pueblo de Dios en su conjunto, que es un Pueblo de profetas. Por el don del Esp铆ritu Santo, los miembros de la Iglesia poseen el "sentido de la fe". Se trata de una especie de 'instinto espiritual' que hace 'sentire cum Ecclesia' y discernir lo que es conforme a la fe apost贸lica y al esp铆ritu del Evangelio".

"Efectivamente, el 'sensus fidelium', no se puede confundir con la realidad sociol贸gica de una opini贸n mayoritaria. Por lo tanto es importante, y es vuestra tarea, elaborar los criterios que permitan discernir las expresiones aut茅nticas del 'sensus fidelium'. Esta atenci贸n es de m谩xima importancia para los te贸logos. El Papa Benedicto XVI subray贸 varias veces que el te贸logo debe permanecer a la escucha de la fe vivida por los humildes y los peque艅os, a los que el Padre quiso revelar lo que est谩 escondido a los doctos y a los sabios".

La misi贸n del te贸logo es al mismo tiempo "fascinante y arriesgada. Fascinante porque la b煤squeda y la ense艅anza de la teolog铆a pueden convertirse en un verdadero camino de santidad, como atestiguan numerosos Padres y Doctores de la Iglesia. Pero tambi茅n es arriesgada porque comporta tentaciones: la aridez del coraz贸n, el orgullo, incluso la ambici贸n", ha observado el Papa.

Luego record贸 que a este prop贸sito la misiva que una vez San Francisco de As铆s mand贸 a San Antonio de Padua: "Me gusta que ense艅es la sagrada teolog铆a a los hermanos, con tal de que, con el estudio, no apagues el esp铆ritu de santa oraci贸n y devoci贸n".

Al final, el Santo Padre ha encomendado a los te贸logos a la Virgen Inmaculada para que "crezcan en este esp铆ritu de oraci贸n y de devoci贸n y, as铆, con profundo sentido de humildad, sean verdaderos servidores de la Iglesia".
