Will We Be Faithful?

While teaching a high school religion class, the author assigned students to write to various religious leaders who had participated in Vatican II. She decided to write to Fr. De Lubac, S.J. whose work, The Splendor of the Church had inspired her, asking two questions; “Why do you feel the Catholic Faith is the right faith for you? and "What do you feel is the biggest problem facing the Church today? Read Father De Lubac's response to S. Judith Best, SSND, as translated from French.

Facilitator directions are available.
