It has taken “audacity” and “courage” for Caribbean theology to develop over 25 years and more of these are needed in moving forward.
“Theology is about us; every one of us…it is to recognise and articulate what has been going on that is the mission…we hope the young theologians are committed the task,” said Msgr Patrick ‘Paba’ Anthony of St Lucia as he delivered the opening lecture Monday, June 24 for Caribbean Theology Today conference at the Assumption Parish Hall, Maraval.
He recalled founding coordinator, the late Fr Michel de Verteuil CSSp, kept promoting theology as “for the ordinary people”. Msgr Anthony said, “Michel kept on saying that…theology is not only for some …it is for all. That’s one of the things that define Caribbean theology”.
