Theology 12 - Beta

Morality & Church History III

This aim of this course is to teach students how to pray, and inspire them to pursue virtue and sanctity, to trust in Divine Providence, and to make life choices based on sound moral principles. The course will explore in the Church teachings regarding prayer, Divine Providence, morality, vocations, marriage, the family, the Church and, in true Kolbian style, it will end with a study of Our Blessed Mother.

Course Description

The course will introduce the student to a devout life in the modern world and the practice of mental prayer; give the student the tools to distinguish between forms of prayer that are compatible with Christianity and those that are not; explain why sanctity and perfection consist in doing "everything to conform to God's will" as St. Teresa of Avila says, and why that is the highest perfection possible; encourage boundless trust in God, His Divine Providence, His Love, and His Mercy; impart a firm understanding of Christian moral principals and the proper application of Christian moral principals in life situations; impart a greater understanding of the dignity of the human person, freewill and vocation; foster a deeper admiration of the particular callings within the Church; inspire each student to respond with greater zeal to the Universal Call to Holiness; reveal the beauty and sanctity of Matrimony in the Catholic Church and the benefits and responsibilities of family life; show forth the excellence of religious vocations, their benefits and responsibilities, as well as briefly define the various type of religious vocations in the Church; further the understanding of one's duties to God, Church, self, spouse, family, state, and society; and foster a profound appreciation and understanding of Our Lady, her role in salvation and in our lives.
