Having created, God did not withdraw the divine presence or activity, but remained fully knowledgeable of and engaged with the world. This engagement includes revealing God and God's ways.


Religious freedom should be supported and the expressions of faith of others should be respected.


People are called to love God not only with their hearts, but also with their minds. All things should be considered through the light of reason. In order to do that, it is necessary to become aware of different points of view and be able to develop critical thinking in relation to any political or social problem.
