Vatican II Class: Catholicism Meets Modernity
The Catholic Community at Stanford presents a lecture by Catherine Cornille on 13 May 2013. This is one of a series of talks in the course, offered Spring 2013. See the CTSF page for more information.
Though the shortest of Vatican II documents, Nostra Aetate (Declaration on Non-Christian Religions) has generally been regarded as one of the most radical and innovative documents, a watershed in the relationship of the Church to non-Christian religions. In this lecture, we will explore the contents and the context of the document, its impact on theological reflection regarding the question of the salvation of non-Christians, and its role in advancing dialogue with non-Christian.
The complete archive of Vatican II class (and Newman Night lectures and Vatican II Symposium) is available on our CCASweb channel.
The Catholic Community at Stanford University is a family of students, faculty, staff, administrators, their families, and local community members. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit and through a variety of social, educational, liturgical, and community service programs, we seek to form the Christian conscience, help members appropriate the Catholic faith, educate for justice, facilitate personal development, and form leaders for the future. We support the University's efforts to achieve its goals in keeping with our own traditions and in an environment of religious and cultural diversity. We are a personal parish in the Diocese of San José under the pastoral care of Dominicans and lay leaders.
This Week's Confessions
By appointment only:
If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.
