The orientation, especially spiritual, that Christians can have on, those who wish to live as per the Gospel, is a primary aspect of the pastoral solicitude of the Church. This is to help the person gradually to get the freedom that allows following Jesus Christ in the world. This approach understands the humans as relational and open to communication with grace.
