TOLERANCE PRACTICE AND PRINCIPLE
Posted by: encourageny on June 8, 2017 previous - next
How true that in our society and the perceived worldliness of the younger generations that a simple theological definition offered a half century (or more) ago still rings true today. As we read the newspapers, watch or listen to local or national newscasts, it seems as if their editorial objective is reverse of the message of this noble man of God. We must strive to act and believe in the tolerance of love just as our savior Jesus Christ did as he offered himself on the cross for our salvation. Anything less casts us on the opposing side of Christ and his undying message of love.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Fr. Reginald Marie Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P. (1877-1964) is considered the greatest Catholic theologian of the 20th century. Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange came to the attention of Catholic scholars early in the last century, when he wrote against Modernism. Knowing that Modernism—which denied the objective truth of Divine revelation and taught an heretical conception of the evolution of dogma—attacked the very heart of the Catholic faith, Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange authored what are now classic works on apologetics, in defense of the Catholic Faith by way of both philosophy and theology. He taught at the Angelicum in Rome from 1909 to 1960, and served as a consultor to the Holy Office and other Roman Congregations for several years. He is most famous, however, for his works, an astonishing 500 books and articles. In these he has demonstrated that he is a true son of St. Thomas Aquinas [full-color picture above] in the classic Dominican tradition.
