THEO 5565 Root, Rite and Reason: Understanding the sacraments of the Church (Fall: 3 )
Following an introductory section on the Catholic principle of sacramentality, this course considers, in turn, each of the seven sacraments in an attempt to appreciate the role that these Spirit-filled actions play in the Church's saving mission to witness to Jesus Christ and to proclaim the Kingdom of his God and Father until he comes again. Participants in the course will be introduced to the texts of significant authors on sacramental theology, particularly from the period following the Second Vatican Council. Course evaluation will be linked to a number of short reflection papers presented during the semester.
