"This vision is composed .of many aspects, among wbich we note one now: that of recognizing, firstly, a relative, but effective, autonomy of the profane world, a world in which religion, or rather the Church, exercises no direct power. "Secondly, to recognize likewise the 'values' of this same profane world, the prayers, the virtues, the works, the institutions, in which it is rich and to which, in our time, with sc'ientific studies and sociopolitical organizations, it has given such prodigious development. "Thirdly, we have no dif- ficulty in recognizing that there are many conspicuous ad- vantages toward a better adherence and more efficacious profession of our faith Which may derive from modern culture." An Adversary The Pope declared: "For that reason, no one will believe us an adversary o.f the principle of profane and civic progress in the world. No one will accuse us of religious 'integralism,' in the sense of wishing to subject the to the natural world directly . religious world in doctrine and practice No one will judge us strangers to real life, or as passed by the evolution of history, or as anachronistic defenders of the past, blind and hostile to the civilization of the future."

Pope Paul mentioned a few of the cliches used by atheists: Man is the supreme being for fellow man; anthropology must replace theology, humanity must take the place of the Supreme Being, God is dead for the modern man. Thetendency of thought which champions purely terrestrial .and human values for their own sake is called secularization, he said. But Pope Paul warned that "if this tendency becomes isolated and breaks away from philosophic and religious bases. it tends to become secularism," the negation of every other philosophic and CYO Promoting Fasting, Abstinence Little Rock -- Parish Catholic youth Organizations throughout the state are being asked to pronote the signing of a WorId Hunger Action Coalition "petition calling on Americans to eat less so that tarving peoople elsewhere will not go hungry.
