Day #122: Gaudium Et Spes 37

In the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World today, we continue our reflection on Man’s Activity Throughout the World.

Article 37 addresses the great temptations that come along with human progress.  The Church has the solution:

“…all human activity, constantly imperiled by man’s pride and deranged self-love, must be purified and perfected by the power of Christ’s cross and resurrection.”

That solutions is, of course, Christ.

Here are the Scripture references:

Rom. 12:2

1 Cor. 3:22-23

And the footnotes:

8. Cf. Matt. 24:13; 13:24-30 and 36-43.

9. Cf. 2 Cor. 6:10.
