  • Foucault dan Teologi

    • Authors: Konrad Kebung
      Pages: 276 - 290
      Abstract: This article presents the relation between Michel Foucault’s philosophical thoughts and theology. So far one might hardly hear about the discussion of the impact of Foucault’s thought on theology and all disciplines related to it, such as religion, exegesis, spirituality, and the like. Recently many poststructuralists and postmodern thinkers have been interested in this issue. In fact, Foucault’s thoughts and analyses are considered very useful for the development of theology and the concepts of religious experience. Through his analyses of history and culture, Foucault prepares raw materials useful for theological reflections which are basically grounded on reality and the concrete life of humankind. Thus Foucault can help theology more rooted within reality, and therefore theology is not merely associated with the ecclesiological and dogmatic teachings of the Church, but can help them to be more easily digested and practised by the living community of the believers.

  • Katekese Keluarga Kristiani di Paroki-Paroki Daerah dalam Terang Seruan
           Apostolik Amoris Laetitia

    • Authors: Oktavianus Arianto
      Pages: 291 - 328
      Abstract: Christian families are called to participate in the missions of the Church. One of the missions is the proclamation of Christian faith and the propagation of moral values. Christian families’ participation in the proclamation process can be carried out through family catechesis. Family members can do family catechesis in the light of Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia. The apostolic exhortation speaks, among other things, about the joy of love in the family. In the family catechesis, each member of the family is the subject of catechesis. The proclamation of Christian faith and the propagation of moral values in the family can use simple and contextual catechetical methods, especially among the parishes in rural area. This article explores the roles of family members, the themes for catechesis, and the methods of family catechesis to be used in rural area in Indonesia. A contextual catechesis is a form of catechesis that takes into account the experiences of the faithful as a source of family catechesis in relation to the Scripture. Family catechesis can also draw on cultural components, especially the local wisdoms which do not contradict the teachings of the Church, as part of the method of proclamation of the Christian faith and of propagation of moral values.

  • Model-Model Partisipasi Kaum Awam Katolik dalam Ekumenisme Berdasarkan
           Imaji-Imaji Biblis dan Inspirasi Teologis

    • Authors: Nicolaus Agung Suprobo
      Pages: 329 - 359
      Abstract: History shows that there were divisions within the Church. After the Second Vatican Council the Catholic Church began to be more open in contributing efforts for the restoration of Christian unity. One of the results is the publication of Unitatis Redintegratio. In this document Art. 5, it is emphasised that ecumenism is the responsibility of all members of the Church, including the laity. Hence the participation of the laity is important in the process of restoring unity among Christians. The apparently low participation of Catholic laity in ecumenism might have been due to the risk of blurring their identity as Catholics. Based on this issue, this article offers models of participation for Catholic laity in ecumenism. Models are offered for the reason that they are flexible, can be interpreted according to the contextual challenges, and contain patterns of relationship that can help Catholic laity take initiatives in promoting dialogue. Five models offered in this article are model of faith conversation, model of friendship, model of sharing of spiritual wealth, model of dialogue of life, and model of familial visits. These five models can encourage close interpersonal relationships and are inclusive in their characteristics, so that the laity can use them spontaneously and independently in establishing relationships. Through these models, Catholics are motivated to contribute to the Church’s efforts towards unity and to participate more actively in the ecumenical dialogue and cooperation.

  • Dialektika Konsep Ketuhanan dalam Ritual Lea sose pada Masyarakat
           Manggarai dan Gereja Katolik

    • Authors: Sefrianus Juhani, Benediktus Denar, FX. E. Armada Riyanto
      Pages: 360 - 378
      Abstract: This article aims to dialogue the concept of divinity in Manggarai, Indonesia, with the teachings of the Catholic Church. The concept of God in the Manggarai community has some similarities with the doctrine of God in the Catholic Church, that is, concerning the acknowledgment of God’s existence, involvement, and care. However, there are also matters that are quite different and that are not found in each respective context. On the one hand, the similarities can help those involved in catechesis with fresh understandings. On the other hand, the differences may enrich the outlook into knowledge about the concept of divinity, both in the context of living the Church’s teachings as well as in the context of being member of the cultural community. The results of the dialogue as explored in this article open the possibilities to help decrease the practices of syncretism on matters of faith in the Manggarai Catholic community. The approaches used by the authors to trace the concept of divinity in the two contexts are mainly qualitative with ethnographic and documentation methods. The findings are a mainstay for pastoral agents in determining certain themes for catechesis, especially those related to the concept of Godhead.

  • Memaknai Peristiwa Kematian dalam Terang Estetika Teologis Kristiani

    • Authors: Benedictus Raditya Wijaya
      Pages: 379 - 398
      Abstract: Death is constantly frightening, even for the believers. It is an event where people mourn as they grieve the permanent loss of their loved ones. It often causes irrational judgments, and destroys the harmony within a family. Some Christians still find it difficult to accept. The Church’s teachings address the event of death as part of the believer’s reality. Death is seen as the culmination of transformative experience in Christian life and faith, so that news on someone’s death is not regarded as an event of destruction, but rather an experience of faith. This article offers an interpretation that death is not seen as merely ‘death’ from human perspective, but a passage towards a mystical and aesthetic point of view which illustrates a sign of God’s calling to humans to enter the beauty and union with God.
