VATICAN CITY, April 30, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Speaking yesterday to members of the Pontifical Biblical Commission and their president, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Pope John Paul II spoke about the theme of the gathering, “The Bible and Morals”.  He said: “Everyone can see that there is a paradox: man today, disillusioned by so many unsatisfactory answers to the basic questions about life, seems to open himself to the voice that comes from the Transcendent Being and is expressed in the bible message. At the same time, however, he seems to be more and more intolerant of being asked to behave in harmony with the values that the Church has forever presented as founded on the Gospel. We thus see the most varied attempts to unlink biblical revelation from the most binding proposals of life.”  (with files from the Vatican Information Service)  The original text of the Pope’s remarks in Italian:  https://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/speeches/2003/april/documents/hf_jp-ii_spe_20030429_pont-comm-biblica_it.html
