Synodevaders - 27 oktober 2012
We are Christians living in a secularized world. Whereas the world is and remains God’s creation, secularization falls within the sphere of human culture. As Christians we cannot remain indifferent to the process of secularization. We are in fact in a situation similar to that of the first Christians and as such we should see this both as a challenge and a possibility. We live in this world, but are not of this world Vgl. Joh 15, 19 Vgl. Joh. 17, 11.16 . The world is God’s creation and manifests his love. In and through Jesus Christ we receive God’s salvation and are able to discern the progress of his creation. Jesus opens the doors for us anew so that, without fear, we can lovingly embrace the wounds of the Church and of the world (cf. Benedict XVI).
In our present age, that manifests aspects more difficult than the past, even if we are like “the little flock” (Lc. 12, 32), we bear witness to the Gospel message of salvation and we are called to be salt and light of a new world Vgl. Mt. 5, 13-16 .
