Amoris Laetitia and Veritatis Splendor on the “Object of the Act”Delicata, Nadia (University of Malta. Faculty of Theology, 2017)On taking up a text, it is good to remind ourselves that our reading of this
encyclical must be a real dialogue in which both reader and document have a
part. A minimum of openness and good will is indispensable if we are to welcome
and grasp any writer’s thought, discover his message, and draw profit from it. The
suggestion of the apostle St. James is also relevant: “Be quick to listen and slow
to speak.” In other words, we first have to read it attentively, a little as if we were
listening to a friend. We need to take time out too, for reflection, to make sure we
really hear what it is saying. Then we shall be able to make an informed judgment
and perhaps later some pertinent comments.
Given the rich fruits of the two-year Synod process, this Exhortation will treat,
in different ways, a wide variety of questions. This explains its inevitable length.
Consequently, I do not recommend a rushed reading of the text. The greatest
benefit, for families themselves and for those engaged in the family apostolate,
will come if each part is read patiently and carefully, or if attention is paid to the
parts dealing with their specific needs.
I introduce the article with these two quotes, both referring to documents of
the Magisterium, to make a simple observation. While they were written
twenty years apart, the two authors are making exactly the same point. In fact,
one would be justified in thinking that they might be considering exactly the
Challenge to authority : Catholic laity in Chile and the United States, 1966-1987Oxhorn, Phil (advisor); Mooney, Mary (McGill University, 1994)This dissertation analyzes the nature and degree of attitudinal change that has taken place within a key sector of the Catholic Church, i.e, lay leaders, in the period between 1966 and 1987 in two different national contexts, Chile and the United States. It builds on an unfinished study by Ivan Vallier, who attempted to clarify the ambiguous position of the laity in the Church and in society, in implementing the reforms of Vatican II. The author interviewed 96 middle-class lay leaders, plus dozens of informants. The analysis examines continuity and change on three issues. Some key findings include: a significant change in concepts of Church and God, toward more intimate/maternal images that encompass an active social dimension; much greater salience and complexity of the 'democratization' issue, particularly concerning the role of women, in the American Church; and the continuing imperative of the socio-political issue for the Chileans and their demands for more, not less, political involvement by the hierarchy. The results reflect the persistent tensions between 'progressive' and 'conservative' models of change, and help to explain the continuing importance of religion in modern society.
