All human beings by nature desire to know. This natural desire will one day be satiated when we see God face to face in the Beatific Vision. Here we are in the realm of meaning of life. Philosophy, love of wisdom, plays a role of crucial importance in one’s search for meaning of life. Philosopher is a lover of wisdom. As it is stated in the Apology of Plato true wisdom belong to God. To be a lover of wisdom is to begin a relationship with God and this relationship culminates in the Beatific Vision.

While I congratulate the students of the National Seminary Philosophate for all their achievements, I wish that their love for wisdom may enable them to gain a wider vision of life and that they may arrive at The Truth by nurturing their natural desire to know. 

May God Bless You!
