Assent

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 12, 2003

The September 8th issue of the Jesuit magazine America includes this among its News Briefs:

The Jesuit Conference on Aug. 26 announced that as a result of questions raised by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith about certain writings of John R. Sachs, S.J., and at the request of the congregation, Father Sachs has formally declared his assent to the church's teaching concerning homosexuality as taught in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (editio typica, No. 2357, 2358, 2390) and the church's teaching concerning the ordination of women as taught in Ordinatio Sacerdotalis.

Father Sachs is the Dean of the Weston Jesuit School of Theology in Cambridge, MA.
