In such a culture "liberty and co-responsibility, autonomy and interdependence, efficien- cy and solidarity would be wisely joined," he said. This "Christian-inspired culture" would be a "sign of contradiction" to in- dividualism and collectivism, both of Which lack a "percep- tion of the transcendent dimen- sk:n of the human person," he said. The pope spoke Nov. 20 at the Vatican to about 1,000 par- ticipants in a meeting spon- sored by the Italian bishops' conference on the theme, "Men, New Technologies, Solidarity: The Service of the Italian Church." In the transfor- mation of society, the laity plays a key role, the pope told them. "In a society always more rich in knowledge but perhaps more poor in wisdom, the lay faithful, immersed in daily life, must feel the duty to assimilate and diffuse the 'knowledge' of the truth about man," the pope said. The pope described as a great concern the division between the ethical and economic dimensions of life which demands a "strong recalling to the value of solidarity.', The growing in- terdependence of the world's economy means that attention must be paid to the "implica- tions of the model of develop- ment adopted." Unacceptable are processes which "heavily penalize the Third World, creating forms always more deeply unbalanc- ed and unequal," he said. Message clarification A Nov. 13 story in the Message on income for the two Evansville Catholic high schools incorrectly identified the Catholic Education Founda- tion. The story mentioned pro- jected income from the Catholic Education Foundation Endow- ment. Income from the Reitz and Helfrich endowments and the Rex Mundi Trust should have been listed instead.
