Caritas in Veritate

The progress development and the improvement of human dignity are determined by love of truth. Truth means embedded virtue and beauty. Love is synonymous with beauty, therefore, truth, virtue and beauty are interdependent mutual prerequisites. Truth is not only conceptual or ideal (notional), but it also concerns moral act (right conduct). Not only intellectually abstract but also concrete in appearance and directly experienced in action. In other words, truth in love is revelational truth, not doctrinal. Love of truth is not relative and particular, but universal, and it brings orientation and enriches the meaning of life. Love of truth is believed to be able to face relativistic tyranny and relativistic absoluteness.
