Product Description

Theologian Charles C. Camosy makes light of cliches like "Vatican II baby boomers," "Trad millennials," "zealous converts," and "Christmas and Easter Catholics" to describe the viewpoints that divide the modern Church.

He claims that despite our differences, the fullness of the Gospel and a true grasp of the Catholic faith can lead to reconciliation and unity. By discussing what it takes to listen to and love others who have opinions that are different from our own and to comprehend how we are joined in the Body of Christ, the Church, Camosy provides a hopeful and useful field guide for the here and now in One Church.

There have always been significant disagreements regarding how the faith should be practiced within the Catholic Church throughout its history, such as those between Peter and Paul, Jerome and Augustine, Franciscans and Dominicans, left and right, "Rad Trads" and Vatican II Catholics.

It has never been more challenging to achieve unity in variety than it is in the polarized world of today. Sts. Jerome and Augustine communicated their disagreements via letter, but today's most polarizing platforms are social media.

The Catholic Conversation Project's founder and director, Camosy, recommends the following five principles for conversation to strengthen our bond as the Body of Christ:

  • maintain a humble attitude;
  • avoid binary thinking and dismissive name-calling;
  • affirm and build on common ground;
  • make Christ the center of everything; and
  • lead with what you are for, not what you are against
