People need not just to accept but also to grow in relationship with God. God's grace and love constantly prompts and seeks to transform people, and so they should continually seek and pray to grow in holiness and love.


The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.


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.
