Christianity, the religion of the God “who has a human face,” contains these criteria within itself (no. 55, O–S, 565). Benedict recognizes the importance of freedom, but he links human freedom with the higher values of charity, fraternity, and truth (no. 73, O–S, 576). The truth sets us free; freedom must always be exercised responsibly. Dangers of unlimited freedom exist in many areas. Today’s international capital market offers great freedom of action. But there is an increasing awareness of the need for a greater social responsibility on the part of business.
The source for Heraclitus is a fragment published in a 1952 German book. The exact quote from Heraclitus is the phrase “a heap of scattered refuse,” which the encyclical uses to describe what human nature is not (no. 48, O–S, 559). Such a one-sided emphasis in the notes stands in tension with Benedict’s own call for dialogue with others, and it raises again the question of how the papal magisterium learns what it teaches. The third characteristic associated with the authoritative nature of papal social teaching that is common to Benedict and the earlier documents of papal social teaching concerns the way they are composed.
