Reflecting on Ratzinger’s concept of Europe

The crisis of the moral values is one of the main reasons attributed by Ratzinger to the fall of the modern society. He stresses the fact that once people start losing their Faith in God, moral values are useless. While finding solutions to the crisis, Ratzinger states the fact that if the world and the man hadn’t been the product of a creative intelligence that would contain measures and organize our existence in a rational way, then all that’s left behind would have been just unnecessary rules. Taking into account the consequences of such a perspective, it stands true that concepts like logos, the word in the beginning, the creative reason and the love are decisive for the Christian revealance of God.

Keywords: reason, european spititual power, modernity
