Pope John Paul II cared for every man and woman. He says that the membership of “the people of God” can be extended to every human being because “from one stock he made every nation of mankind to dwell on the face of the earth. It is he who set limits to their epochs and fixed the boundaries of their regions. They were to seek God, yes to grope for him and perhaps eventually to find him – though he is not really far from any one of us” (Acts 17, 26–27). As the Church looks at the progress of mankind in changing its attitude toward nature, restructuring its social and cultural relationships, she has to do more than turning around altars to face the people in her churches. All the disturbances of equilibrium that bring suffering to the people today go back to a much deeper imbalance that dwells in the human heart. John Paul II raised the idea (although no longer new but very urgent in our times) that the progress of mankind ought to be measured not merely by scientifical and technical development but by the height of values and the development of moral life. The Holy Father stresses the importance of understanding and estimating spiritual values, preferring them to the material ones. Giving priority to spiritual values creates the necessary conditions to make the material, technical and cultural progress serve to what really makes up the human person. [...]
