Rev. Jaroslaw Kupczak, O.P.
Abstract: The goal of this article is to discuss Michael Waldstein’s introduction to his new translation of John Paul II’s catecheses on the Theology of the Body. A special emphasis will be given to the discussion of the sources of the papal theology of communio. The main thesis will consist in the conviction that it is due to the theological influences of the Second Vatican Council that the notion of communio appears in the writings of Karol Wojtyła/John Paul II.
At the beginning of this lecture, before introducing Fr. Kupczack, Dr. Waldstein offers a response to Dr. Colosi’s lecture, which contained some remarks of a critical nature to Dr. Waldstein’s opening talk.
