With Kaye O’Bryan, Carmel Wallis, John Goonan and Stephen Kemmis
Many Catholics, particularly parents, teachers and others involved in faith formation, can be disconcerted by advances in knowledge and scientific developments which appear to conflict with their own recollection or understanding of Catholic doctrine.
Addressing key areas where this apparent conflict is most prevalent, A New Habit of Mind demonstrates that advances in general knowledge, far from diminishing the Church’s timeless truth, shed greater light on them. What is important is that we cultivate, in the words of Pope Paul VI, ‘a new habit of mind’ to recognise this.
