Mary

Wonderful Marian reflections from Rossi de Gasperis, Balthasar, John Paul II, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Bozzolo. Ratzinger, earlier. All moving in the same direction. Obviously, RdG draws from Balthasar - and from Lonergan. So does John Paul II, the CCC, and Bozzolo.

I was thinking of Lonergan's remark: the theology that we need will emerge from a fusion of Balthasar and one other (Schillebeeckx? Rahner?) - and, I suppose, Lonergan's method.

Balthasar: the man who worked alone. The great star. Etoile. But what an enormous influence, all the same. Lonergan: another man who worked alone, but worked out a method that would enable us to work together, or at the very least, make more explicitly and deliberately methodical our already-working-together. How could the two come together?
