Sharing with you the text of last Wednesday’s lecture given by the secretary of the Congregation for the Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, Archbishop Augustine DiNoia, OP at the Yale Club, NYC. He “examines three specific challenges and the cultural assumptions that underlie them: what it means to call Christ the Savior, what it means to be authentically human, and what it means to be moral”.
“In the Christian understanding, authentic interpersonal communion presupposes the full realization, not the absorption or suppression, of the individual persons who enter into it. Thus, if Chris is to be the pattern for the transformation accomplished in us by the Holy Spirit, it can only mean that in being conformed to him, we each discover and realize our unique identities as persons.” -Arch. A. DiNoia, OP
