The beginning of the twenty-first century has provided abundant evidence of the necessity to reexamine the relationship between Catholicism and the modern, global world. This book tries to proceed on this path with a focus on the meaning, legacy, and reception in today's world of the ecclesiology of Vatican II, starting with Gaudium et Spes: "This council exhorts Christians, as citizens of two cities, to strive to discharge their earthly duties conscientiously and in response to the Gospel spirit." Catholicism and Citizenship is a call for a rediscovery of the moral and political imagination of Vatican II for the Church and the world of our time.
Massimo Faggioli is professor of theology and religious studies at Villanova University and a contributing editor for Commonweal. Among his books with Liturgical Press are True Reform: Liturgy and Ecclesiology in Sacrosanctum Concilium (2012); Pope John XXIII: The Medicine of Mercy (2014);and Sorting Out Catholicism: A Brief History of the New Ecclesial Movements (2014).
-In Catholicism and Citizenship, an accomplished historian of the Vatican II Church situates the novelty of Pope Francis's orientation--and the resistance it has provoked--on the complex, changing, and disturbing terrain of global politics and the crisis of the nation state.' Francis envisions the Church as an engaged member of world society--missionary and prophetic, yet nonideological and inclusive. To those dismayed by public vitriol, worried about international politics, or doubtful that the Church can change the world, this book will bring new breadth of insight and encouraging seeds of hope.-Lisa Sowle Cahill, Boston College
