Cardinal Francis George on Evangelization, Mission, Communion, and the Ecclesiology of Faith and Culture vs. Church and State

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

Here’s another one of my favorite talks by the late Cardinal Francis George, OMI, on the Ecclesiology of Communion, given at Leeds Trinity University in 2012 —

–in which he made a critical distinction between the ecclesiology of of Faith and Culture versus that of Church and State, and he emphasized the Vatican II teaching on the Church as the sacrament of the unity of the human race (Lumen Gentium, Vatican II Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, 1). These distinctions have profound implications for pastoral and educational practice.

This talk requires several separate hearings to capture some of the prescient points the late Cardinal shared.

I’m assuming that some of this talk will be included in Cardinal George’s forthcoming book, A Godly Humanism: Clarifying the Hope that Lies Within, which is due from Catholic University of America Press in June, 2015.
