The Church’s Proposal for the Global Community
"Gaudium et Spes"
(Pastoral Constitution of the Church in the Modern World, 1965)
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
"Gaudium et Spes" (Pastoral Constitution of the Church in the Modern World) is a groundbreaking document of the Second Vatican Council. It presents a brave new outlook for the global community in light of new developments in the community of nations. Like “Pacem in Terris”, this document is addressed “all people of good will,” calling nations to develop a new collaborative approach in building a more just and peaceful world. This session presupposes knowledge of Part 2, Chapters III-V ( Nos. 63-93) in advance of the discussion.
