The primordial model of the family is to be sought in God Pope John Paul II Picture Quote

Family Quotes, Humanity Quotes

The primordial model of the family is to be sought in God himself, in the Trinitarian mystery of his life. The divine "We" is the eternal pattern of the human "we", especially of that "we" formed by the man and the woman created in the divine image and likeness...

Humankind, which discovers its capacity to transform and in a certain sense Pope John Paul II Picture Quote

Earth Quotes, Gift Quotes, People Quotes

Humankind, which discovers its capacity to transform and in a certain sense create the world through its own work, forgets that this is always based on God's prior and original gift of things that are. People think that they can make arbitrary use of the earth, subjecting it without restraint to their wills, as though the earth did not have its own requisites and a prior God-given purpose, which human beings can indeed develop but must not betray.

Every scientist, through personal study and research, completes himself and his own Pope John Paul II Picture Quote

Earth Quotes, Humanity Quotes

Every scientist, through personal study and research, completes himself and his own humanity. ... Scientific research constitutes for you, as it does for many, the way for the personal encounter with truth, and perhaps the privileged place for the encounter itself with God, the Creator of heaven and earth.
