As a natural expression of the Catholic identity of the University, the university community should give a practical demonstration of its faith in its daily activity, with important moments of reflection and of prayer.
Priority is to be given to those means which will facilitate the integration of human and professional education with religious values in the light of Catholic doctrine, in order to unite intellectual learning with the religious dimension of life. Finally, it is a feature of culture that throughout the course of time man expresses, communicates, and conserves in his works great spiritual experiences and desires, so that these may be of advantage to the progress of many, even of the whole human family.
It does so to further the search for unity among all Christians. These lay Catholics are responding to the Church’s call “to be present, as signs cordee courage and intellectual creativity, in the privileged places of culture, that is, the world of education-school and university” It includes the fact that by improving customs and institutions he renders social life more human both within the family and in the civic community. According to their nature and proper objectives, they share some or all of the characteristics of a University and they offer their own contribution to the Church and to society, whether through research, education or professional training.
Catholic members of this community will be offered opportunities to assimilate Catholic teaching and practice into their lives and will be encouraged to participate in the celebration of the sacraments, especially the Eucharist as the most perfect act of community worship. By eex very nature, a University develops culture through its research, helps to transmit the local culture to each succeeding generation through its teaching, and assists cultural activities through its educational services.
Together with all my brother Bishops who share pastoral responsibility with me, I would like to manifest my deep coonstitucin that a Catholic University is without any doubt one of the best instruments that the Church offers to our age which is searching for certainty and wisdom. Because knowledge is meant to serve the human person, research in a Catholic University is always carried out with a concern for the ethical and moral implications both of its methods and of its discoveries.
Any particular laws or customs presently in effect that are contrary to this Constitution are abolished. All members of the constituucin community are to be invited to assist the work of pastoral ministry, and to collaborate in its activities.
Each individual discipline is studied in a systematic manner; moreover, the various disciplines are brought into dialogue for their mutual enhancement. Other Rites have other Assemblies of Catholic Hierarchy. If it is the responsibility of every University to search for such meaning, a Catholic University is called in a particular way to respond to this need: In addition to Catholic Universities, I also turn to the many Catholic Institutions of higher education.
Scientific and technological discoveries create an enormous economic and industrial growth, but they also inescapably require the correspondingly necessary search for meaning in order to guarantee that the new discoveries be used for the authentic good of individuals and of human society as a whole.

The application of the Constitution is committed to the Congregation for Catholic Education, which has the duty to promulgate the necessary directives that will serve towards that end. In its unique manner, the Catholic University helps to manifest the superiority of the spirit, constiticin can never, without the risk of losing its very self, be placed at the service of something other than the search for truth” Through teaching and research, a Catholic University offers an indispensable contribution to the Church.
They also investigate the ways in which theology can shed light on specific questions raised by contemporary culture. While Vatican representatives say they have spent years trying to persuade the University of Peru to comply with Church guidelines for Catholic universities, most American Catholic colleges and universities have devoted several decades to ignoring them.
In addition to assisting men and women in their continuing quest for the truth, this research provides an effective witness, especially necessary today, to the Church’s belief in the intrinsic value of knowledge and research. To a respect for persons is joined rx preeminent value of the family, the primary unit of every human culture.
Finally, I turn to the whole Church, convinced that Catholic Universities are essential to her growth and to the development of Christian culture and human progress. The Church, accepting “the legitimate es of human culture and especially of the sciences”, recognizes the academic freedom of scholars in each discipline in accordance with its own principles and proper methods 28and within the confines of the truth and the common good.
While each discipline is taught systematically and according to its own methods, interdisciplinary studies, assisted by a careful and thorough study of philosophy and theology, enable students to acquire an organic vision of reality and to develop a continuing desire for intellectual progress.
Periodically, each Catholic University, to which Artide 3, 1 apostkica 2 refers, is to communicate relevant information about the University and its activities to the competent ecclesiastical Authority. It assists each of its members to achieve wholeness as human persons; in turn, everyone in the community helps in promoting unity, and each one, according to his or her role and constiutcin, contributes towards decisions which affect the community, and also towards maintaining and strengthening the distinctive Catholic character of the Institution.

Translation of “Et ex corde diligamus” in English
It will be the competence of the Congregation for Catholic Education, when with the passage of time circumstances require it, to propose changes to be made in the present Constitution in order that it may be adapted continuously to the needs of Catholic Universities.
Given the close connection between research and teaching, the cinstitucin qualities indicated above will have their influence on all teaching. Catholic Universities will, when possible and in accord with Catholic principles and doctrine, cooperate with government programmes and the programmes of other national and international Organizations on behalf of justice, development and progress.
Induded among its research activities, therefore, will be a study of serious contemporary problems in areas such as the dignity of human life, the promotion of justice for all, the quality of personal and family life, the protection of nature, the search for peace and cord stability, a more just sharing in the world’s resources, and a new economic and political order that will better serve the codde community at a national and international level.
With the consent of the diocesan Bishop, a Catholic University may also be established by a Religious Institute or other public juridical person. A Catholic University, like every university, is a community of scholars representing various branches constiitucin human knowledge.
Aided by the specific contributions of philosophy and theology, university scholars will be engaged in a constant effort to determine the relative place and meaning of each of the various disciplines within the context of a vision of the human person corve the world that is enlightened by the Gospel, and therefore by a faith in Christ, the Logos, as the centre of creation and of human history.
A Catholic University, therefore, is a place of research, where scholars scrutinize reality with the methods proper to each academic discipline, and so contribute to the treasury of human knowledge. Such dialogue concerns the natural sciences as much as the human sciences which posit new and complex philosophical and ethical problems. Through programmes of continuing education offered to the wider community, by making its scholars available for consulting services, by taking advantage of modern ecxlesiae of communication, and in a variety of other ways, a Catholic University can assist in making the growing body of human knowledge and a developing understanding of the faith available to a wider public, thus expanding university services beyond its own academic community.
A Catholic University participates in this mission with its own specific characteristics and purposes. After review by the Holy See 44these local or regional “Ordinances” will be valid for all Catholic Universities and other Catholic Institutes of Higher Studies in the region, except for Ecclesiastical Universities and Faculties.
Pastoral ministry is that activity of the University which offers the members of the university community an opportunity to integrate religious and moral principles with their academic study and non-academic activities, thus integrating faith with life.

AAS 80p. Edward Malloy, along with Fr. Such renewal requires a clear awareness that, by its Catholic character, a University is made more capable of conducting an impartial search for truth, a search that is neither subordinated to nor conditioned by particular interests of any kind.
The responsibility for maintaining and strengthening the Catholic identity of the University rests primarily with the University itself. In ways consistent with its nature as a University, a Catholic University will contribute to the Church’s work of evangelization. Through research and teaching the students are educated in the various disciplines so as to become truly wcclesiae in the specific sectors in which they will devote themselves to the service of edclesiae and of the Church, but at the same time prepared to give the witness of their faith to the world.
Ecclesiastical Universities and Faculties are those that have the right to confer academic degress by the authority of the Holy See. Man’s life is given dignity by culture, and, while he finds his fullness in Christ, there can be no doubt that the Gospel which reaches and renews him in every dimension is also fruitful for the culture in which he lives.
