This course seeks to give a historical, Christo-centric, inculturated, and pastoral approach to the study of fundamental moral theology. This course will present the historical richness and diversity of the Church’s moral tradition. By tracing the history of the development of the Church’s moral teaching, the course seeks to relate the Church’s on-going moral discernment with the development of the Church’s self-understanding as it journeys through human history.

This course affirms the constant presence and activity of the Holy Spirit among the various members of the church acting as moral co-discerners as they seek to follow the way of Christ. This course will stress that the moral life involves both avoiding evil and doing good.

Through the use of examples and cases, the course will seek to link moral issues addressed by the local church with the teachings of the magisterium. The course will seek to show how the local hierarchy has appropriated and applied the church’s moral teaching. On the pastoral level, students will be encouraged to use what they have learned from the course to discuss and address specific moral issues.

Students are highly encouraged to participate in class discussions and share their experiences and insight regarding contemporary moral issues.

Maximum number of students each section: 40
