The International Theological Commission released a document on
Thursday, titled "Theology Today: Perspectives, Principles and
Criteria". Below is the full text of the Press Release announcing the
Publication of the Document
Theology Today: Perspectives, Principles and Criteria
by the International Theological Commission
In the wake of its document In Search of a Universal Ethic: A New Look
at Natural Law (2009), the International Theological Commission, as part
of its work of assisting the Holy See, and the Congregation for the
Doctrine of the Faith in particular, to examine more important doctrinal
questions, has today (8 March 2012) issued a new English-language
document, entitled Theology Today: Perspectives, Principles and
Criteria. It will be published on the International Theological
Commission’s page on the Vatican website (www.vatican.va) and in the CNS
documentary service Origins, as well as on the website of the United
States Conference of Catholic Bishops. An Italian translation will
shortly appear in La Civiltà Cattolica and translations into other major languages are also planned.
Work on the document began during the quinquennium (2004-2008) in the
sub-commission headed by Father Santiago del Cura Elena. The text was
drafted in the light of studies undertaken during the current
quinquennium in the sub-commission headed by Msgr. Paul McPartlan.
The document examines a number of contemporary theological issues and
sets forth, in light of the foundational principles of theology,
methodological criteria which must be considered decisive for Catholic
theology vis-à-vis other related disciplines, such as the religious
sciences. The text is divided into thee chapters: theology presupposes
attentive listening to the word of God accepted in faith (chapter 1); it
is practised in communion with the Church (chapter 2); and its aim is
to ground a scientific approach to God’s truth within a horizon of
authentic wisdom (chapter 3).
The text was approved in forma
specifica by the International Theological Commission on 29 November
2011 and submitted to the President of the Commission, Cardinal William
Levada, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, who
authorized its publication.

|Gavin, I look forward to winlakg with you in old Portuguese Ireland, if the lore of the mothers is real. That Mick would rise again, in more than spirit, music, and revolution, after having fought his battle to be an American, shot in the left side of his back, through the subclavian artery with so many bullets .a martyr reborn, according to Dr. Ian Stevenson, would have heart defects and missing left ventricle. Yes. It's true. And not my fault. I have no idea what this will sound like, but my heart is a mother in grief. With or Without that child. Wish B didn't terrorise me so. I love him, but he's always older and I followed barely able to walk in diapers behind great men. Can a woman do any more any better, than giver herself away. I did only when I had to, when my son was dying John Shannon.
