By Carlo Maria Martini,D. Modena

In una società confusa e disorientata come l. a. nostra, "la Parola di Dio è fonte di vita in keeping with tutti " perché "parla al cuore dell'uomo, lo aiuta a scoprire i propri desideri e a comprendere a fondo l. a. propria personalità". Di fronte a questa Parola il cardinale Martini, dopo anni di studi, riflessioni e preghiera, non smette di stupirsi. Una meraviglia - racconta - simile a quella di un bambino che consistent with l. a. prima volta spalanca gli occhi davanti a un landscape alpino, attratto da una bellezza e da una forza imponente: "Il cristianesimo è according to ciascuno di noi occasione di continua scoperta e gioia". E colme di questa meraviglia sono le omelie qui raccolte, pronunciate dall'ex arcivescovo di Milano negli ultimi anni: non soltanto commenti puntuali, da parte di un advantageous biblista, ai passi delle Scritture proposti dalla liturgia, ma meditazioni semplici e extreme, interventi brevi ma ricchi di stimoli, according to aiutare a comprendere a fondo il messaggio universale di amore e accoglienza proclamato da Gesù e narrato nei Vangeli.
Quello del cardinale Martini, infatti, è un percorso che seguendo il calendario liturgico ricompone il racconto della vita di Cristo, ed è insieme un invito, aperto a tutti, credenti e non, a riscoprire l'autenticità del "farsi prossimo " consistent with chi è distante, ciò che nel Vangelo viene annunciato a ogni uomo, nessuno escluso. Ma nel contempo è anche un personale itinerario dalla parola al silenzio, un progressivo abbandonarsi alla volontà del Padre, lasciando che sia proprio los angeles Parola di Dio a illuminare l'esistenza umana.
Provato dalla malattia, il cardinale è costretto a pronunciare con grande fatica omelie sempre più brevi, prima di giungere alla decisione di non celebrare più los angeles messa in pubblico; così, nelle ultime prediche presentate, qualsiasi possibile commento al Vangelo through through si riduce a poche semplici citazioni bibliche, quasi a voler testimoniare che mentre l. a. voce dell'uomo perde vigore e diminuisce sino alla quiete, è solo l. a. Parola di Dio che può spiegare se stessa, al di là di ogni tempo.

Download PDF by Bernd Schröder: Religionspädagogik (Neue Theologische Grundrisse) (German

By Bernd Schröder

Bernd Schröder erschließt die Religionspädagogik unter fünf verschiedenen, methodisch reflektierten Perspektiven. Sein Lehrbuch entfaltet das Fach mit historischer Tiefenschärfe und unter vergleichender Wahrnehmung religiöser Erziehung in anderen Religionen (Judentum und Islam) und Ländern (England und Frankreich); er verbindet empirische Bestandsaufnahmen mit systematischer Konzept- und Begriffsentwicklung, ohne darüber sein handlungsorientierendes Interesse aus dem Blick zu verlieren.
Auf diese Weise entsteht ein umfassendes landscape religionspädagogischer Herausforderungen und Lösungsansätze für die Lernorte Schule und Gemeinde, Medien und Familie sowie - erstmals explizit entfaltet - Öffentlichkeit. Dabei wird angesichts der Transformationskrise des Christentums in der Moderne deren gebotene Synergie betont, zudem beispielsweise die Notwendigkeit multipler Berufstheorien für Erzieherinnen und Religionslehrende, die Akzentuierung von 'Religion im Schulleben', kritisch-subjektorientierter Religionsdidaktik und didaktisch reflektierter Medienarbeit. Religionspädagogik wird als theologische Disziplin profiliert, die mit ihrer unerlässlichen Methodenvielfalt an eine Fülle theologischer wie nicht-theologischer Disziplinen anschließt. Sie sichtet deren Erträge unter dem ihr eigenen Fokus auf Bildung aus christlicher, hier: evangelischer Perspektive, wertet sie kritisch aus und führt sie weiter zu einer integralen Theorie, die mannigfaltiges Handeln der Akteure bestimmt und orientiert.
