WASHINGTON — Theologians must not be content with an intellectual pursuit of truth but must evangelize with charity so that the Gospel retains its freshness, the head of the Church’s doctrinal office insisted.
In a Nov. 3 lecture at The Catholic University of America, Cardinal Gerhard Müller, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, expressed his appreciation for the “charism of the theologians” in helping “the Church, in her commitment to evangelization.”
However, the cardinal continued, in carrying out “this service as part of the Church’s saving mission” theologians should carry the truth to the world.
Theologians, he urged, “must always remember that the Church and theology exist to evangelize and not to be content with a desk-bound theology.”
