Building Bridges

Truth, the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, and Building Cultural Relationships in the Image of God

(p.32) 2 Building Bridges
In the Lógos of Love

Miguel H. Diaz

Oxford University Press

Fostering cultural relations in the image of God is a powerful means of confronting the culture of fear that may result from increasing diversity with cultures of hospitality. Catholic intellectual tradition offers as resources notions of truth and cultural identity that, along with emerging and marginalized voices can provide new tools to address diversity and help bridge polarizing differences. The doctrine of the Trinity, particularly as articulated by theologian John Zizioulas, is a central resource of the Catholic intellectual tradition. Latino/a theology offers a further contribution to this discussion. This reception may be helped since for the first time a Latin American Catholic, Pope Francis, has become the pastor of the Church.

Keywords:   Catholicity, diversity, John Zizioulas, Latino/a Catholicism, Pope Francis, Trinity, truth as communion
