What do you think is the most important current theological discussion among Catholics?
Rev. Walter Burghardt, S.J. discusses the current discussion on authority in the Catholic Church. By raising the issue of women’s ordination, Burghart discusses the different sources of authority: Scripture, theologians, Councils of the Church, and Church hierarchy. He remarks how teachings of authority seem to not trouble the laity until the issues addressed directly affect the individual and community, making this the most influential discussion of today.
