Pastoral Practices, Life Experience, and Moral Theology : Amoris Laetitia Between New Opportunities and New Paths
(May 11-14, 2022)
The conference aims to deepen the critical issues, the provocations and the ideas of the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia of Pope Francis, to progress in theological-moral reflection, in the awareness that it continues to have a programmatic significance for the theology of marriage and family, and finally, for Christian ethics. For this reason it is necessary to start again from pastoral practice, in its ecclesial horizon, to rethink theological-moral questions, in a constructive dialogue with universal human experience, but always particular in different cultures and life histories.
The conference aims to explore the critical issues, provocations, and ideas that emerged from the Apostolical Exhortation Amoris Laetitia of Pope Francis. It seeks to understand them in greater depth and to further explore the applications of an evolving theological-moral reflection, and its pastoral implications. We believe that this papal teaching has continuing significance both for the theology of marriage and the family, and for moral theology in general. This approach starts from within an ecclesial horizon and is also ready to re-think theological and moral issues in a constructive dialogue with human experience. This experience is considered both universal and always contextualised by particular cultures and personal events.
