Theologika Digest’s September 2014 issue takes “Called to Community” as its theme, looking at the Church as community in its foundation and its living in faith. Articles feature Fr. David Heney and his University adult education program, artist John Nava’s Communion of Saints tapestries, Cardinal Avery Dulles’ models of the Church, Henri Nouwen on friendship, a Church Leadership crossword puzzle, inspiration from Vatican II, Native American celebration of liturgy, and more.
I must not be the dry, bloodless reproduction of a model, however perfect. God desires us to follow the examples of the saints by absorbing the vital sap of their virtues and turning it into our own life-blood, adapting it to our own individual capacities and particular circumstances.
Angelo Roncalli, Pope St. John XXXIII
