Boston College professor calls upon theologians to be faithful to Magisterium

Catholic World News - October 03, 2012

Writing for L’Osservatore Romano, a Boston College theology professor called upon his fellow theologians to be faithful to the Church’s teaching.

“The work of theology, though not reducible to proclamation and catechesis, is also inseparable from them,” writes Father Robert Imbelli, a priest of the Archdiocese of New York and onetime board member of the Catholic Theological Society of America. “Though the distinct gifts and contributions of each ecclesial vocation must be respected, there is a vital and intimate connection among them.”

“Separated from proclamation and catechesis, theology risks building upon the shifting sands of the contemporary Zeitgeist,” he added. “Anchored in the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and oriented by the Church’s Magisterium, theologians can faithfully fulfill the service of the scribe, instructed in the way of Jesus Christ, ‘who brings forth out of his treasure things new and old.’”
