In the first place, this article argues that universities have today an unavoidable commitment with truth on the human being, because the person is the receptacle of a renewed humanism which cannot be reduced by scientific instrumentality or a lack of transcendence. In the second place, this article characterizes the identity and mission of the Catholic University as a distinctive feature, generating the experience of Christ, road, truth and life; and, in the third place, the author proposes the Catholic University as the place for the post humanism of love. The Catholic University should have the best academic standards ensuring thus the efficiency of its graduates; and, above all, to be the first to foster and convey the experience of God through the building of a society sensible to the others, accepting their differences, and sensitive to pardon and love.
