Dr. Eduardo Echeverria on Pope Francis’ Vision for the Renewal of the Church Symposium

Is it possible to affirm a single truth within a plurality of expressions? What is the relationship between doctrinal truth and pastoral practice?

Dr. Eduardo Echeverria, Professor of Theology and Philopsophy at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, shows how Pope Francis, following Vatican II and St. Vincent of Lerins, views pastoral practice within the framework of development of doctrine. This talk is based on his 2015 book entitled, “Pope Francis: The Legacy of Vatican II”.
