Archbishop Di Noia



A New Christian Humanism:
The Legacy of Pope Saint John Paul II




A Lecture by
Archbishop J. Augustine Di Noia, O.P.
Adjunct Secretary of the
Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith

Audience
The Dominican House of Studies and the Friends of John Paul II Foundation co-sponsored the lecture. The event was well attended (275 persons). Archbishop J. Augustine Di Noia, O.P., is a member of the Dominican Order,  a noted theologian and prominent member of the Roman Curia.

An Outline Summary of Archbishop Di Noia's talk can be obtained by clicking here . The second page of the Summary Sheet contains a number of excellent references on Saint John Paul II's teachings.

The presentation started with a comparison between Christian and Secular Humanism. Archbishop Di Noia gave highlights of the four Encyclicals concerned with Christian Humanism and also touched upon the results from Vatican II because Saint John Paul II played a very important roll in the Second Vatican Council. The first encyclical discussed was "Redemptor Hominus" (1979) written shortly after Cardinal Wojtyla became Pope and gives the outline of the mission of his pontificate. Audience Archbishop Di Noia then gave his views on "Evangelium Vitae" (1995) which deals with sanctity of life, "Veritas Splendor" (1993) that reviews the moral teachings of the Church and "Fides et Ratio" (1998) that deals with the relationship between faith and reason. Throughout Archbishop Di Noia's talk, he emphasized the theme of his presentation that these four encyclicals contrasted the differences between Christian Humanism and Secular Humanism.
