Tradition of faith should resist moral relativism, Pope tells Macedonian envoy
Catholic World News - April 22, 2010
As he met with a new ambassador from Macedonia to the Holy See on April 22, Pope Benedict XVI said that he hoped the country's rich Christian heritage would counteract the "general context of moral relativism and scant interest in religious experience affecting a part of European society."
The Pope told the new envoy, Gjoko Gjorgjevski, that after "the tragedy of World War II, and following the sad experience of a totalitarianism that denied the fundamental rights of the human person," Macedonia is now moving in a positive direction. But progress, he cautioned, must "take account of people's cultural, social, and spiritual requirements."
The Pope observed that the recent construction of a number of new churches points to a strong enduring Christian faith that will serve Macedonia well in coming years.
