LEGITIMATE DIVERSITY IS THE WAY: CONVERSATIONS ARE THE MEANS
by Ted Schmidt
The Church is a mystery. It is a reality imbued with the divine presence and for that reason it is always open to new and deeper exploration.
Pope Paul Vl
We would like to pay special tribute to those brilliant scholars whose extremely competent works of theological research and exposition, undertaken in exemplary submission to the Church’s teaching authority, have made such an expert and useful contribution to this subject, especially within recent years. They have carried on this work not only in the theological schools, but also in discussions with academicians and intellectuals, in popular writings in defense of the Christian truth, in the spiritual direction of the faithful, and in conversations with our separated brethren. In all this they have presented many and various illustrations of the doctrine on the Church, many of which are quite outstanding and exceptionally useful.
