restricted access Ecumenical Reflections on Moral Discernment
Abstract

After reviewing the recent ARCUSA statement and two other recent ecumenical documents, the essay turns to Catholic moral teaching with emphasis on the 1993 encyclical, Veritatis splendor. The author notes a lacuna in the recent literature in the failure to examine systems of moral thinking. His agenda for the future would include a deeper exploration in Catholic moral theology of (a) the biblical witness, (b) the role of intention in moral decision-making, and (c) the guidance of the Holy Spirit in moral discernment.
