Sometimes I think Catholic moral theology doesn’t deal enough – or seriously enough – in doubts. Maybe that’s for systematic theologians – but our arguments in this field are supposed to be more certain. This isn’t just about what is lawful, which is part of our field’s history and discourse. It is also that we promote definite paths of action and specific ways of seeking or imagining justice.
This reflection on the Easter readings – done in combination with our ecumenical friends at the Ekklesia Project – speaks both to doubt and to living as Christian witnesses in spite of it all.
May I also offer a Happy Easter in advance to all of our readers.
