September 11, 2018 Council of the Baptized Open Forum
The Open Forum is held at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 700 S. Snelling Avenue in St. Paul 7PM.
“'Listen to your inner voice, children. It will guide you': Conscience before and after Vatican II."
Join the Council of the Baptized Open Forum on Tuesday, September 11, 7:00 p.m., to address this question. Mary Ellen Jordan, former St. Catherine University Professor, will lead the discussion.
As a nun’s advice to school children illustrates, the Church has always taught that a person must follow the dictates of conscience. A brief historic overview of Church teaching on conscience illustrates continuing tension between the individual conscience and church authority. This tension is at the heart of current debates over the Church’s traditional teaching on “pelvic morality” issues. It has even deeper roots, however, for it involves the very definition of infallibility which has been under debate since Vatican II.
Come on September 11th to help us all grow in understanding.
