Have you seen this?

I'm looking for an english translation of a recent Church document, published in spanish called "Teologia y secularizacion" (Theology and Secularisation). I've read it in spanish - it's magnificent. It was published at the end of March by the Spanish Bishops and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. It focusses on the heart of our faith - how we approach Christ, and it shines light on the true path out of the secularist mud which we have been wading in. If you can find an english translation of it on the Internet, please let me know. If not, perhaps I can set about translating it myself.
We need this one! Fr Richard
The original is available on the Spanish Bishops website, top right hand corner: http://www.conferenciaepiscopal.es/

Hello Fr Richard
I'm afraid it's not translated yet, although lots of the juicy bits have appeared on various blogs. It is a magnificent document that could only have been produced by a hierarchy where the intellect is valued and priests are allowed to study and to teach.

I don't mind helping with the translation but I'm not up to doing the full piece. How many Spanish speakers are there among us?

Will you check on copyright?

Fr Julian Green said...

Copyright is one of those things the new Evangelisation rides over rough shod.

I'm not sure how many Spanish speakers are out there - let us know if you are.
As for an English Translation of this document - let's wait a little while and see if the English Edition of "L'Osservatore Romano" covers it - I expect it will.
