My overarching aim as a moral theologian and war/peace ethicist is to find ways of bridging these divides and work for the common good. This commitment aligns with my conviction: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God” (Mt 5:9).

What surprised me most, I think, was to see how early Ratzinger’s mature theological vision emerged—at least in regards to Scripture and Revelation.

Perhaps it is obvious, but I believe that we need to know each other’s histories. American Catholics can be pretty tribal—within neighborhoods, parishes, and ethnic communities. But I think that we can benefit from the experiences of others, no matter our backgrounds.
