Interpreting Gospel Ethics in an Age of Polarization

with Sr. Laurie Brink, OP


Did Jesus really mean for us to be this good this long?  Or were his commandments simply meant to direct the believers until his imminent return? The delay of the Parousia became the first theological crisis for the early church. How were the faithful to live in the mean time? Fast forward 2,000 years. We’re still awaiting Jesus’ return. How are we to re-interpret the ethical mandates of Jesus, in light of our own complex, intercultural, and polarized world?
