FOR US MEN AND FOR OUR SALVATION

42 The theocentric-trinitarian purpose of the economy of salvation cannot be separated from its objective, which is this: that men, set free from 5m and its consequences, should be made as much like Christ as possible (cf. LG, 39). As the incarnation of the Word, se every revealed truth is for us men and for our salvation. To view the diverse Christian truths in their relation 10 the ultimate end of man is one of the conditions needed for a most fruitful understanding of them (cf. First Vatican Council, Dogm. Const. Dei Filius, Dz.-Sch., 3016).

 

Catechesis must, then, show clearly the very close connection of the mystery of God and Christ with man’s existence and his ultimate end. This method in no way implies any contempt for the earthly goals which men are divinely called to pursue by individual or common efforts; it does, however, clearly teach that man’s ultimate end is not confined to These temporal goals, but rather surpasses them beyond ail expectation, 10 a degree that only God’s love for men could make possible.
