As I Have Loved You: The Challenge of Christian Ethics
Paulist Press, 1986 - 227 pagini
In this basic study on morality, James P. Hanigan suggests the reasons why a Christian morality is necessary to complement the teaching of Jesus in the Gospels. As I Have Loved You presents the problems, procedures and insights of moral theology, or Christian ethics, from the perspective of a Roman Catholic theologian. He examines the significant impact on the understanding of faith and morality of the changes introduced by Vatican Council II: religious freedom, the sanctity and inviolability of the individual conscience, greater social freedom and justice, and a renewed emphasis on the importance of the Bible. Feeling that people's confusion need not be as great as it sometimes is, Dr. Hanigan presents in this book a clear overview of a consistent and coherent tradition of moral thought and reflection. Students at all levels of college study, educated adults, and professional ministers seeking updating will find this to be a challenging book. +

Pagina 83 - Action on behalf of justice and participation in the transformation of the world fully appear to us as a constitutive dimension of the preaching of the Gospel, or, in other words, of the Church's mission for the redemption of the human race and its liberation from every oppressive situation.
Pagina 217 - Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
Pagina 151 - For I am certain of this: neither death nor life, no angel, no prince, nothing that exists, nothing still to come, not any power, or height or depth, nor any created thing, can ever come between us and the love of God made visible in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Pagina 82 - ... that one should not withdraw from individuals and commit to the community what they can accomplish by their own enterprise and industry. So, too, it is an injustice and at the same time a grave evil and a disturbance of right order, to transfer to the larger and higher collectivity functions which can be performed and provided for by lesser and subordinate bodies. Inasmuch as every social activity should, by its very nature, prove a help to members of the body social, it should never destroy...
Pagina 36 - Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law, justice and mercy and faith; these you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.
Pagina 186 - For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.
Pagina 122 - In the depths of his conscience, man detects a law which he does not impose upon himself, but which holds him to obedience. Always summoning him to love good and avoid evil, the voice of conscience can when necessary speak to his heart more specifically: do this, shun that.
Pagina 209 - This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Pagina 122 - Conscience is the most secret core and sanctuary of a man. There he is alone with God, whose voice echoes in his depths.
Pagina 122 - Deep within his conscience man discovers a law which he has not laid upon himself but which he must obey.
