DIRECTORY FOR THE MINISTRY AND THE LIFE OF PRIESTS BOOK PRODUCTION

The phenomenon of “secularisation” – the tendency to live life in a horizontal projection, setting aside or neutralising the dimension of transcendence while nonetheless accepting religious discourse – has for several decades been involving all baptized persons without exception to such a degree as to engage those, whose task it is by divine mandate to guide the Church, to take resolute positions. One of the most relevant effects of this is the departure from religious practice, with a refusal – at times conscious, and at other times induced by habitual forms of conduct insidiously imposed by a culture determined to dechristianise civil society – of the depositum fidei as authentically taught by the Catholic Magisterium, as well as the authority and role of the sacred ministers called by Christ to Himself (Mk 3:13-19) to cooperate in his plan of salvation and to lead men to the obedience of the faith (Sir 48:10; Heb 4:111; Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 144 ff.).
