Church and society should work together, says Pope Francis


Vatican City, August 30 - Ecclesiastical
authorities and secular powers should "work together for the
overall good of the community," Pope Francis said on Friday in a
letter to the Inter-Christian Symposium being held in Milan.
"Civil power, however, finds limits before the law of God,"
he wrote.
The symposium, with the theme "The Life of Christians and
Civil Power. Historical Issues and Current Prospects in the East
and West" is focusing on the 1700th anniversary of the Edict of
Milan, the decree that granted freedom of worship to Christians
throughout the Roman Empire.
Emperor Constantine I issued the decree in the city of
Milan in February 313 and eight years later declared
Christianity the empire's state religion.
"The historic decision opened new avenues for spreading the
Gospel and contributed to the birth of European civilization,"
said the pope.
