Church must answer society's questions, Pope says

Catholic World News - January 28, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI spoke of the importance of offering authentic Catholic responses to contemporary cultural problems, during a private audience on January 28 with 300 people taking part in a special joint session of the pontifical academies. The Pope observed that the academies were established to provide the Holy See with expert guidance in various fields. With that help, he said, the Church can respond to new questions that arise in society. He told the pontifical academy members:

You are called to make your qualified, competent and enthusiastic contribution to ensure that all the Church, and particularly the Holy See, is able to exploit the appropriate opportunities, languages and means necessary to enter into dialogue with modern cultures.
