Exciting, exciting news everybody:
VATICAN CITY, APR 12, 2007 (VIS) – The Pontifical Biblical Commission is due to celebrate its annual plenary assembly in the Vatican’s “Domus Sanctae Marthae” from April 16 to 20.
The assembly will be presided by Cardinal William Joseph Levada, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and the work sessions will be directed by Fr. Klemens Stock S.J., secretary general of the commission. The meetings will concentrate on the theme of the relationship between the Bible and morals.
I chose my MA concentrations to be biblical studies and moral theology for precisely the reason that I hope to see these disciplines work together more closely, as called for by Vatican II. It’s one of the projects closest to my heart because I think it is of great importance.
I will be eagerly watching to see what comes out of this session.
