Confusion grows at John Paul II Institute after scholars’ open letter | Catholic Herald

The debate over the Pontifical John Paul II Theological Institute for Marriage and Family Sciences has entered a new phase, after nearly 50 academics wrote an open letter asking the leadership to reconsider their reforms.

Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia and Mgr Pierangelo Sequeri, respectively Grand Chancellor and President of the JPII Institute, say they are aiming at “renewal in continuity”. But some of the changes they have introduced have appeared to former and current faculty and students alike as a radical departure from the theologically-oriented ethos that had been the core of the Institute.


It's the usual story.
