I am taking a break today from morality--there is some literal truth to this as Margaret and I had a long and substantive lunch at Disney's Polynesian Resort with delightful old friends who have paid their dues in the "family business" of the Church. I presently sit at the cusp of gluttony; soup for supper tonight.
The moral thread itself is becoming more involved as Catholic theologians--and ethicists in general--diversified through the latter portion of the twentieth century. I am learning new names and new systems, as well as struggling to put them into present day context. A great deal has been written and debated since my seminary days 40+ years ago. It is exciting work but this is an aging horse pulling the plow.
