The Last Shall Be First: Human Potential In Genetic And Theological Perspectives, M Lysaught Mar 2012

The Last Shall Be First: Human Potential In Genetic And Theological Perspectives, M Lysaught

M. Therese Lysaught

The notion of “human potential” provides a fruitful window through which to explore the competing conceptual frameworks of contemporary genetics and Christianity. The contemporary cultural frame of genetics conceives of human potential in a broadly positive manner: the source of personal and societal flourishing is located within individual bodies, waiting to be identified and unleashed by genetic science and medicine for the good of persons and society. In the Judeo-Christian narrative, human individual, biological potential is far less relevant—and, in fact, may be construed as an impediment to the achievement of personal and social flourishing. Implications for the dialogue ...

Gathered For The Journey: Moral Theology In Catholic Perspective, M. Lysaught, David Mccarthy Jun 2007

Gathered For The Journey: Moral Theology In Catholic Perspective, M. Lysaught, David Mccarthy

M. Therese Lysaught

Gathered for the Journey sets moral reasoning in a theological context of worship and discipleship (part 1), provides a framework for the moral life based on questions of human fulfillment (part 2), and demonstrates how these theological resources shape a distinctive approach to questions of globalization, Catholic social teaching, the family, war and peace, bioethics, and the environment (part 3). McCarthy and Lysaught have crafted a distinctively unified collection. Gathered for the Journey represents a common project among Catholic scholars who are struggling with similar questions about living faithfully.


Practicing The Order Of Widows: A New Call For An Old Vocation, M. Therese Lysaught Mar 2005

Practicing The Order Of Widows: A New Call For An Old Vocation, M. Therese Lysaught

M. Therese Lysaught

This essay argues for a renewed institution of an ancient Christian practice, the Order of Widows. Drawing on the Roman Catholic tradition's recent writings on the elderly, particularly the 1998 document from the Pontifical Council for the Laity entitled “The Dignity of Older People and their Mission in the Church and in the World,” I argue that we find within the Roman Catholic tradition advocacy for a renewed understanding of the vocation of the elderly within the Church. Building on this, I then trace in the broadest of outlines some elements of what a renewal of the Order of ...
