John Courtney Murray’s American Justification for Catholic Action

(p.107) 4 From Participation to Community
Empowering the People of God

Christopher D. Denny

Fordham University Press

Christopher Denny explores some of the early writings of the American Catholic theologian John Courtney Murray, better known for his later contributions to the Second Vatican Council. Locating Murray amongst other theoretical writers on Catholic Action, Denny demonstrates how Murray offered a reading of lay empowerment that did not succumb to the temptation to embrace materialism or negative liberty, but continued to affirm the freedoms of laypeople within a Catholic frame of reference.
