Mission of theology is to strengthen faith, commission says
Catholic World News - October 16, 2012
The International Theological Commission has issued a message for the Year of Faith, promising to make a pilgrimage to the Roman basilica of St. Mary Major to pray for the Pope’s initiative.
The commission’s statement, released October 16, promises “its own specific contribution to the new evangelization promoted by the Apostolic See.” The statement said that theologians should recognize their work as a bid to “inculturate in human intelligence, in the form of authentic science, the intelligible content of the faith that was once and for all entrusted to the saints.” The entire purpose of theology, the statement said, is “to foster the growth in faith of the people of God and the evangelizing mission of the Church.”
