New document gives big boost to 'sense of the faithful'

 | 

When the document from the International Theological Commission was released in late June, it drew little buzz. Its authors -- from Canada, Britain, France, Poland, and other countries -- were unknown to me except for the one American on the panel, Sr. Sara Butler. She taught at Chicago's Mundelein Seminary for many years and is best known for her opposition to women's ordination.

US theological society plans sensus fidelium theme for meeting

 | 

Members of a Vatican theological body are exploring just how hard bishops must listen to lay people.

If the members of the body, known as the International Theological Commission, want to go more in-depth on the topic of the sensus fidelium, they may want to consider traveling to Milwaukee next June.

The Catholic Theological Society of America, a 1,400-member group of U.S. theologians, plans to address the topic from a variety of angles during its four-day annual conference next summer.
