Ad Petri Cathedram (June 29, ) | John XXIII

Ours would be an even cafhedram lot, for we do have the use of reason and by abusing it which, unfortunately, often happens we can sink into a state lower than that of beasts. A Renewal of Christian Life In writing these words Our thoughts have turned to the bishops, priests, and laymen who have been driven into exile or held under restraint or in prison because they have refused to abandon the work entrusted to them as bishops and priests and to forsake their Catholic faith.

They must seek God’s grace in humble and ceaseless prayer, and they must rely on this grace far more than on their own toil and labor. If anyone is so unfortunate as to wander far from his divine Redeemer in sin and iniquity, let him return to Him who is “the way, and the truth, and the life.


All of these can provide inspiration and incentive for morality and goodness, even Christian virtue. We urge them to strive tirelessly and with all their strength for the achievement of cathedra goals their founders have set forth in those rules. May the grace of God move all men to attain these objectives, which all desire, even though prejudices, great difficulties, and many obstacles stand in the way of their achievement.

Jesus Cathedrqm left her these sacraments as a sacred legacy, and she had never ceased to administer them throughout the Catholic world and thus to feed and foster the supernatural life of the faithful. The more overwhelming the needs of our age, the csthedram should be cafhedram efforts, concern, industry, and zeal.

The Christian family is a sacred institution. Then shall international conferences seek and reach decisions conducive to the longed-for unity of the whole human family.

While they are being punished, they rejoice as though they are being rewarded There is, perhaps, no undertaking that pleases God more than this one; it is an integral part of the duty all men have to spread the kingdom of God.

These men seek not their own interests, but those of Cathrdram Christ.

On the contrary, she cares for them as would a loving mother. Acta Apostolicae Sedis51 It wars with every sort of error, including that which falsely wears the face of truth; it struggles against the enticements of vice, against those enemies of the soul, of whatever description, who can weaken, blemish, or destroy our innocence or Catholic faith.

But they will accomplish all caathedram as they should petrri if each of them pays particular attention to his personal formation in Christian wisdom cathedtam virtue. They tend the sick in hospitals and lead their thoughts to heavenly things. The olive branch of peace would not shine in our thoughts; the firebrands of war would blaze there. We wish to repeat to you again the sublime and beautiful words of the Apostle of the Gentiles, “Whatever things are true, whatever of good repute, if there be any virtue, if there be anything worthy of praise, think upon these things.


All paths are not open to them. These errors turn everything upside down: Time and time again, therefore, We have asked that all be granted the lawful freedom to which all, including God’s Church, are entitled.

Each and every man is to enjoy the fruits of the earth and receive from it his sustenance and the necessities of life.
