Moral and Spiritual Theology
Tuesdays, 4-7 p.m. Aug 23 – Nov 29
Christ Cathedral Campus, Tower of Hope,
Third Floor Conference Room
This course will provide students with an introduction to moral and spiritual theology in the Catholic tradition. The first part of the course will focus on moral theology, following the order of the third part of the Catechism of the Catholic Church: Life in Christ. In addition to a careful study of the moral act, topics will include: the human person, the moral law, human freedom, virtue, and bioethics. The course will also offer an emphasis on how to communicate the Church’s moral teachings. The second part of the course will focus on spiritual theology, following the fourth part of the Catechism: Christian Prayer. We will examine the universal call to prayer, different spiritual traditions in the Catholic Church, and the writings of specific saints. Both sections of the course will rely on a careful reading of select texts, including Veritatis Splendor. Additionally, both will examine contemporary challenges.
Available for full credit. Also offered for the special audit price of $395. (20% tuition discount to all employees of the Diocese of Orange and its schools, including JSerra Catholic High School.) Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to enroll.
