Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Birth of Karol Wojtyła

John Paul II’s Theology of the Body: A Path toward the Source

Livio Melina

“Since the body, too, is called to participate in the final resurrection to the vision of God, . . . it is a living organ that allows us to see God better.”

I Can Only Be Understood From Within: Introducing The English Critical Edition of the Works of JPII

Antonio López

“In the saint’s life and work, human existence, with all its drama and questions, meets God’s eternal and ever-new Incarnate Word spoken to man in his historical time.”

Person and Nature According to Wojtyła’s Person and Act

Michael M. Waldstein

“What makes self-determination possible is knowledge of the truth about the good as a good that is to be done.”

Reason, Value, and the Holy: An Introduction to Karol Wojtyła’s “The Lived-Experience of Value”

Grzegorz Ignatik

“The objective content of revelation alone evokes in man a response in the form of lived-experience—a lived-experience that possesses both a theoretical and practical character.”

The Lived-Experience of Value in the Act of Faith

Pope John Paul II Karol Wojtyła

“God draws human reason and elevates it to the participation in his own knowledge by revealing to it truths that are the proper object of divine reason.”

A Dialogue with Professor David L. Schindler on Conscience, Moral Theology, and Modernity

Todd A. Salzman Michael G. Lawler

“Human subjects do not have a given relationship to the world that is ‘already, out, there, now, real’; they must establish one.”

Conscience, Moral Theology, and Modernity: A Reply to Professors Salzman and Lawler

David L. Schindler

“Natural law, rightly understood, . . . neither presupposes a reality that is ‘actually meaningless’ when considered objectively or ‘in itself,’ nor does it first become ‘rational’ only by virtue of the activity of human beings and apart from the original ordering activity of the intelligent Creator God.”

Ratzinger’s Reception of Newman on Conscience: Memory, History, Creation, and Christ

Donald G. Graham

“Ratzinger’s harmonization of conscience as the aboriginal vicar of Christ based upon the anamnesis of creation, with the Petrine ministry of Christ’s vicar based upon the anamnesis of faith, helps us to see, as Newman said, that to toast one is to toast the other.”

A Pontificate under the Banner of Mary

Hans Urs von Balthasar

“The spirituality of our Holy Father is a unique refutation of the weary resignation of many Christians today who think that the truths of revelation are too old to ‘be true anymore,’ too worn out to influence the world of today and therefore should be transformed from within.”
