Day #138: Gaudium Et Spes 54-55

In today’s reading from the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World, we begin section 1 of our chapter on culture.

Section 1 basically takes a look at what the current situation is with regards to culture.  Article 54 lists of the many societal changes in our time that result in us truly living in a  “new age of human history.”  Article 55 talks of the “birth of a new humanism” whereby human beings around the globe are ever more aware of their “autonomy” and “responsibility.”

One footnote:

1. Cf. Introductory statement of this constitution, n. 4 ff.
