Church and Society

Avery Cardinal Dulles

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines the papacy for the Catholic Church, looking into the institutional structures that would guarantee its stability and unity. The discussion deals with Vatican I and Vatican II, Pope Paul VI's style, John Paul II and the global church, new institutions of unity, John Paul II's take on inculturation, ecumenical outreach, the principle of subsidiarity, patristic models, proposals for reform, and the dialectic of centralization and diversity. The chapter holds that developments that have taken place with and since the two Vatican councils can scarcely be reversed. The global Church, in a world of rapid communications, demands a primatial office that holds all local and regional churches in dialogue and reaches out to the whole world with the truth and love of Christ.

Keywords:   Vatican, papacy, popes, Pope Paul VI, John Paul II, inculturation, subsidiarity
