Rebuilding the Church: Pope Francis and After

Rebuilding the Church: Pope Francis and After

Published by Xlibris
The unexpected resignation of Pope Benedict XVI followed by
the election of Pope Francis of quite a different mould has
introduced into the Church not more theological discourse, but
signifi cant theological action – a constant preaching, where words are
used only when necessary. This book presents four essays starting with
an imaginary trajectory of the Church during the next hundred years –
where a new style of leadership in the church renews its strength and
vigour by co-opting competent and committed laity. Will this dream
ever be realized? The contention of the author is that it can, because his
dreams are consonant with the doctrinal heritage of the Catholic Church,
as he indicates in the notes. His prayer and wish is that it becomes a
reality. The second essay suggests a pastoral approach that could pave
the way to facilitate the emergence of such a situation. The third essay
is a theological elaboration of the place of the teaching authority of the
church. The fourth essay is a short article which indicates that change
has taken place and will continue to take place in the Church.
