Catholic Theological Ethics and the World Church
Last year at this time, I was getting ready to go to a marvelous conference in Trent, Italy, with moral theologians from around the globe.
The conversation that we had was remarkable. I found the conference an invaluable, living reminder of the fact that the Catholic Church–and the questions that it deals with–are indeed, global in nature.
The participants were so enthusiastic about the new conversations enabled by the conference that we were insistent that that they not be allowed to wither on the vine–or more precisely, without the wine from the vine at the wonderful trattorias in Trento!
One fruit of the project is a website that serves as a clearinghouse and notice board for the ongoing work of expanding the community and the concerns of moral theologians to be truly global.
