Q: Archbishop J, why a theological conference in the Caribbean?
Catholic Theology in the Caribbean Today celebrates 25 years of theological reflection in the Caribbean region. This is a significant milestone. It represents a body of work that is dedicated to the God-human relationship in this special region called the Caribbean.
Like Israel, we have our history and understanding of bondage and salvation. Like others we began with acts of will and violence, and this has not just been our history after our encounter with Columbus. Before the Europeans arrived many families of the first nations were multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural. A past that it seems, we are destined to repeat.
