moral Cristiana, La: En el aliento divino (Catholic Basics: A Pastoral Ministry Series) (Spanish Edition)

El autor presenta una amplia introducción a la esencia de la moral católica, es decir, algo mucho más allá de las prohibiciones: la formación y ejercicio de la conciencia, la gracia, el pecado y la toma de decisiones. Enfatizar los aspectos “terrenales” del Reino de Dios y de la vida cristiana no equivale a decir que la meta sea convertirnos en activistas sociales. Muchos de nosotros podemos identificar importantes obligaciones morales surgidas de nuestra condición de padres, hijos e hijas, hermanos y hermanas, amigos, trabajadores, etc. Algunos de nosotros estamos sanos, algunos sufrimos carencias y enfermedad. Algunos de nosotros gozamos de gran influencia en la vida pública; muchos de nosotros, no. Nuestra colaboración con Dios para la realización de su Reino puede variar significativamente de persona a persona. Todos debemos atender a nuestro prójimo según nuestras posibilidades y así contribuir en la obra de Dios. Debemos cuidar el jardín en el que estamos.  —Del capítulo IIFundamentos de la fe católica: Serie ministerio pastoral es una serie pastoral que ofrece una explicación profunda pero accesible de los fundamentos de la fe católica para adultos, para aquellos que están ya laborando en el ministerio pastoral así como los que se están preparando.

The heat from her body nearly scorched him.She closed the door and stood with her hand on the knob, facing him. She bit her bottom lip, worrying it with her teeth.
