Reviews - What do customers think about The Church and the World: Gaudium et spes, Inter mirifica (Rediscovering the Vatican II)?
CAREFULLY EXAMINES THE ESSENCE AND EVOLUTION OF OUR CHURCH'S MAJOR DOCUMENT ON HUMAN LIFE IN THE MODERN WORLD Nov 25, 2006
Written by a priest professor at the Gregorian Institute in Rome, a scholarly Jesuit priest renowned for his academic abilities, the book presents the genesis and meaning of our Church's most important social document of our time, a document now ignored at our peril as a species and a spirit.
Gaudium et Spes pronounces strongly our Church's and our Faith's position on matters such as war and peace, human rights, economics, international relations and so much more that needs to be addressed prophetically as a Church now more than other. In fact in conjunction with other official documents and pronouncements of our Church, we find ourselves as practicing Catholics unable to support in any way directly or indirectly the Iraqi invasion and its continued immoral, indefensible, illegal engagement.
The authoritative Reverend Father Tanner comprehensively reveals the roots of this document and its implications today. He also explores another document regarding the mass media. This volume, admirably published by that great and Catholic printing house, the Paulist Press, deserves a place in every Catholic library and household, and time in every Catholic hand as we pray about our mission in the modern world and our actions and words among other persons.
