The Freedom Redeemed. The Decalogue in the Papal Homilies Preached in 1991
Languages of publication
Blessed John Paul II in his homilies preached in 1991 to his compatriots in the new socio-political circumstances emphasised that man is still “maturing to freedom”. The human being is created with the free will but his or her freedom needs redemption. The Risen One revealed the immensity of love which the Creator has for his creatures. It is perfected in the act of redemption. The Incarnate Son of God came to restore the fatherhood of God for people as well as the sonship of people in relation to God as the Father. The teaching and the deeds of Christ confirm the superiority of the human over the law. The life of Jesus Christ is characterised by a unique freedom. Jesus knowingly entrusted his earthly lot to the Father. The freedom of Christ has its source in His unity with the Father in the Spirit. Christ is the rock on which the edifice of truth about the world created by God and about the redeemed man stands. “He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom and our righteousness and sanctification and redemption” (1 Cor 1: 30). The awareness of the redemption is based on the conviction that man cannot justify himself or herself but he or she needs God’s justification. Christ is the only Righteous and this is through his obedience that “many will be made righteous” (Rom 5: 19).
