For centuries, the search for truth has been one of the most important tasks for universities and academia. Truth has been the foundation of these institutions. Knowing the truth is a unique spiritual joy (gaudium veritatis). The role of the university in the modern world is not only to observe the events and comment upon them, but also to search for truth and serve humanity. The service of truth and humanity requires crossing the borders of individual disciplines. The dialogue between science and faith can grow creatively in such a way as to overcome the restrictions imposed and open up to the full potential of the combination. Thus faith by its nature requires that its object be understood with the aid of reason, and reason seeking the full truth opens up to what faith can present. Faith enters into human life and knowledge not in order to abolish reason's autonomy, nor to limit its scope for action. Faith cannot therefore lead to some form of depreciation of reason. These two realities - faith and reason - intertwine and complement each other, while each has its own space in which it becomes real.
