METHODS

 

101 Since this work is rather arduous, it is necessary that two dangers be avoided, that is to say, one must guard against:

 

a) considering principles and indications which have not been sufficiently tested and proved as though they were certain;

 

b) demanding a degree of scientific accuracy so high that it cannot be attained.

 

It must also be rightly noted that technical research carried out by means of questionnaires or interviews is of little valueunless preceded by diligent consideration of the various forms of pastoral action that can be chosen. it seems necessary, then, for the Conferences of Bishops to have a complete picture of the situation. This can be obtained by consulting experts truly skilled in examining the evidence available and by drawing conclusions from pastoral action which has already been started. Monographs can be of very useful help in this regard.

 

The entire Christian community should share in the study of the situation, so that the people may be made aware of the questions and be disposed to action.
