VATICAN CITY — The second volume of Pope Benedict XVI’s work “Jesus of Nazareth” is a “fascinating and liberating” book that could usher in a new theological era, Cardinal Marc Ouellet said today at the Vatican’s book launch.

The prefect of the Congregation for Bishops said the 384-page book, which covers the period of Holy Week, transports the reader “along steep paths to the riveting encounter with Jesus, a familiar figure who is revealed to be even closer in his humanity as he is in his divinity.”

In the book entitled “Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week — From the Entrance Into Jerusalem to the Resurrection,” Benedict presents the Passion and Resurrection of Christ as history-changing events...READ MORE

Is TOB Really All About Sex? (5146)

What is the relationship between theology of the body and evangelization?

As he gazes down from the window of the Father’s house at the exuberant fans of his theology of the body, John Paul II must be smiling. How could the Pope who once exhorted the Church to “put out into the deep” in quest of the New Evangelization not be pleased?

After all, nothing could be nearer the heart of the New Evangelization than the true meaning of sex, right? Or is that right? Or, just as crucially, is sex really what theology of the body is all about?

Not according to Michael Waldstein, translator of the definitive English version of the 129 Wednesday audiences containing John Paul II’s teaching on married love, celibacy and fruitfulness. In a 2010 summer course, Waldstein did...READ MORE

Teaching John Paul II’s ‘New Feminism’ — 1 Woman at a Time (5191)

An interview with Terry Polakovic, who recently received the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Cross from Pope Benedict XVI.

03/10/2011 Comments (2)

Terry Polakovic received one of the highest papal honors that a layperson can receive. In November, Pope Benedict XVI awarded her the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Cross (For the Church and Pontiff) for her work as executive director of Endow (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women).

Endow is active in more than 80 dioceses. Last year alone, some 3,785 women were involved in an Endow study group.
Polakovic spoke with Register senior writer Tim Drake from her office in Denver.

Theology of the Body and ‘Mature Purity’ (7427)

How does TOB’s teaching on chastity affect pastoral practice, and how do we teach and live chastity as a result? What does “the redemption of the body” really mean?

03/09/2011 Comments (5)

It is important to remember that the theology of the body was not written to provide a program for teaching chastity. John Paul II wrote it to establish a biblically based anthropology adequate to defend the teaching of Humanae Vitae. That is, he tried to show how Scripture could provide us with an understanding of the human person that would help us understand why the Church condemns contraception. This led him to meditate deeply on the meaning of the human body as a means of revealing the truth about God and man.
John Paul II establishes that our bodies reveal that we are meant to make gifts of ourselves to others and receive others as gifts. John Paul II explains that Adam and Eve were...READ MORE

Copies of the New American Bible, a Catholic Bible in English first published in 1970, are pictured in the bookstore at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington Feb. 2. Revisions were published in 1986 and now this B ible has undergone its first major update since then, with a revised edition to be released March 9, Ash Wednesday, and made in available various print, electronic and audio formats.

The New American Bible Revised Edition (NABRE) released on Ash Wednesday provides Catholics with a new translation of Scripture that is more faithful to the original texts than previous versions. But will they embrace the idiomatic English and fresh but unfamiliar renderings of many of the Bible’s most famous passages?

“One of the major goals,” said Robert Di Vito, a key editor of the project and an associate professor of theology at Loyola University Chicago, where he specializes in the Old Testament and Northwest Semitic philology, the linguistics of ancient biblical languages including Hebrew and Aramaic, “was to have a translation that uses colloquial and contemporary American...READ MORE
