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).
