Receptive Ecumenism and the Call to Catholic Learning

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by attempting to indicate something of what is and is not entailed in pleading for that fundamental transformation of understanding and imagination which would enable us to recover and to sustain a sense of Catholic Christianity as a lifelong educational project. It then considers some of the obstacles which work against the achievement of such a programme. These obstacles are partly external and partly internal; or partly cultural and partly ecclesial. It is argued that it is the quality of our liturgy that will decide whether such a project succeeds or fails.
