I studied theology in St. Pat's a while back and our book for moral theology was Gula's Reason Informed by Faith. I've just become aware of his links to Curran and although I barely used the text I want to read it now and compare it to one which does/could have an imprimatur on it.
I am aware of Veritatis Splendor and would like to read a text taking that into account if possible. Does anyone have any recommendations for books on moral theology which take into account VII and don't promote dissent?
Are you speaking of the new advent website? That would be tough on my eyes, I can't bear that much writing online, it hurts. I'm looking for a book, a printed handbook on morality. Not a book on why abortion is bad and Mass is good, not apologetics but more philosophical. It would be like a framework for how morality works, in light of God. Something along the lines of Fr. Lonergan's Insight..
Thanks Alaisdir, I already know about Veritatis Splendor and have read it. I'm looking for a book that one would use as a foundation for moral theology in an academic setting. I used Gula when I studied a bit out in Maynooth and from amazon.co.uk reviews it seems that it was, perhaps still is, used for seminarians there which is a bit of a worry. Patrick Hannon's Moral Theology A Reader was another one on the booklist, it's a bit lightweight though.
I'm looking for something less dense than Fr. Lonergan's Insight but one that gives a solid foundation to Catholic morality, not the apologetics of it but the philosophy. Surely some moral theologian in line with Church teaching has written a decent book.

I would recommend the book :Hell plus How to Avoid Hell by Fr. FX Schouppe, S.J. and Thomas A. Nelson. (TAN Books & Publishers, Inc., 1989)
It has a large section on moral theology.
I was a seminarian for a month at the Beda Pontifical Seminary, Rome, the seminary under the bishops of England and Wales. I noticed the dissent in the moral theology book we were using and I also pointed it out to a seminarian friend there. At the Angelicum University they have Currans book in the Reference Section of the library.Also on display are the magazines The Tablet etc.

In this case, I will agree with Brencel - I would expect anything by William May to be good. But I would take Senor Andrades advice with a grain of salt - a month in the Beda College in Rome is hardly enough time to learn anything.
Given Senor Andrades' view on what constitutes dissent (i.e. failure to proclaim the most rigorist version of exclusive salvation) I would be very wary of his accusations without more detail. Sadly, since Senor Andrades has been kicked off this board for accusing named bishops of heresy for failing to agree with his Feeneyism, he will not be available to provide more detail.
Christ is the morning star who when the night of this world is past brings to his saints the promise of the light of life and opens everlasting day

Young Ireland: No Magus, it is not. Anything miraculous happening there is the result of people's faith and not the apparition.

Claritas: Medjugorje ? I leave the visions / visionaries up to the Church. As for Our Lady - She is there. Go and experience the grace for yourself for a week. I was completely skeptical of Medjugorje until I did. It's an indescribably spiritual place.
Nov 17, 2018 2:53:29 GMT
maolsheachlann: Why did you go if you were completely sceptical?

woody: Medjugorje is a big hoax!
Dec 25, 2018 15:50:19 GMT
Claritas: It was not my intention to go until a series of events led me there. I'll leave it up to the Church to decide what is and is not a hoax, I can only judge what I personally experienced, and those of others pilgrims I met. My only regret is not going sooner.

Colmcille: Forum is all into politics of the world and mickey measuring instead of any depth of spirituality - wrong focus. No salt or light. Pray and Fast. May God bring blessings to you.
Feb 27, 2019 19:42:56 GMT
maolsheachlann: Well, that is because it is a forum. I suspect everyone who does post here prays and fasts and cultivates a spiritual life. But these are things we agree on, so it doesn't really make for discussion.
Feb 28, 2019 10:18:21 GMT
maolsheachlann: Of course, if you want to take it in a different direction you are welcome to post something.

Colmcille: Political nonsense. You don't have to disagree with the depth of Catholic spirituality, lives of the Saints and treasures of the faith in order to discuss them.
