As You Celebrate, So You Live: A Liturgical Approach on Christian Ethics
Paulachan Kochappilly, CMI, professor of moral theology at Dharmaram College, Bangalore India, delivered his lecture, As You Celebrate, So You Live: A Liturgical Approach to Christian Ethics, during his time as a resident scholar at the Collegeville Institute.
The Inspiration:“The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church directed; at the same time it is the font from which all her power flows” (SC 10); “The other theological disciplines be renewed through a more living contact with the mystery of Christ and the history of salvation” (OT 16); “The essential and primordial foundation of Christian morality is following Christ” (VS 19).
The Imagination: Rejoicing in the golden jubilee year of Vatican II and taking into account the changing and challenging world scenario of our times, here is a discussion on renewing and developing moral theology along the line of Conciliar teaching. At this juncture, I would prefer to call Christian ethics as the way of celebrating life in Christ.
The Insight: CHRISTIAN ETHICS AS THE WAY OF CELEBRATING LIFE IN CHRIST
As you see, so you act As you believe, so you behave As you behave, so you become
