Arch. Luis Antonio Tagle: Why having faith in God can improve society, human relationships

13 novembre 2012

November 11, 2012. (Romereports.com) During the Year of Faith, the Church is asking all Catholics to take the time to study and truly  understand the teachings of the Catholic faith. The Archbishop of Manila, Luis Antonio Tagle, says that nowadays, having faith is not just a matter of religion. He says people’s lack of faith in mankind is changing society.

“In the New Evangelization and the Year of Faith, the Church should pay attention also to the act of faith, but not just the content of the faith, but how the heart of the person could come to faith and respond to faith. Even in ordinary human relationships, faith, trusting other people is becoming quite difficult.”

He says the mission of the New Evangelization and the Year of Faith are quite similar. He adds that when people have faith in God, it’s easier for them to have faith in others. Overtime, this makes societies healthier and stronger.

“If I cannot trust fellow human beings, if I cannot trust the banks, if I cannot trust political institutions, if I cannot trust a person, then there will be no marriage, there will be no commitment to the development of society. If I cannot trust human beings, how can I believe in a God I don’t see.”

On November 24th, Tagle will be elevated to  a Cardinal by Benedict XVI. Under his new role, he says he will continue to emphasize the connection between having a strong faith and improving human relationships.
