  • Msgr McPartlan Chaired Work on New ITC Document

    The latest document from the International Theological Commission (ITC), 'Sensus Fidei in the Life of the Church', was published in June 2014. Msgr Paul McPartlan, Carl J. Peter Professor of Systematic Theology and Ecumenism at CUA, was president of the subcommission of the ITC which produced the document, working from 2011 to early 2014. Since his election in 2013, Pope Francis has given considerable emphasis to the sensus fidei (e.g. in Evangelii Gaudium, nn.119, 198), and the ITC document identifies the sensus fidei as 'a vital resource for the new evangelisation to which the Church is strongly committed in our time' (n.2).

  • Fr. Heil Publishes New Book on the Book of Revelation

    The subtitle of this book published by Wipf and Stock is Worship for Life in the Spirit of Prophecy. The worship that Revelation exhorts and enables is in the divine Spirit of prophetic witness against all forms of idolatrous worship in favor of a true worship of the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb, for an eternal and heavenly life. The audience may begin this worship in the Eucharistic supper into which Revelation leads them by inviting them to respond to the promise of Jesus, “Yes, I am coming soon,” with “Amen! Come Lord Jesus!” They thereby welcome the Lord Jesus to the Eucharistic supper that anticipates his final coming and the divine grace, the gift of eternal life, of the Lord Jesus that is intended to be the destiny of all.

In particular, it reflects the growing scholarly attention to the reception history of biblical texts.
