A tribute to Jean Daniélou: A French Cardinal, Theologian from Vatican II

2012-05-10

He was a Jesuit who died in the year 1974. Throughout his life he made it a point to rediscover the teachings of the Church's founders, by looking into faith and reason. Together, the Fraternity of St. Charles Borromeo and the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, looked into his life and teachings.

"As a theologian, he is important because he was a great theologian who explained things in a way that could be easily understood by many. He deepened his theological reflection by looking into issues that interest people today.”
His mother was a devout Catholic, but his father kept his distance from the Church. But it was precisely that combination that made him understand how to explain faith in a modern world. In fact, to deepen his understanding of theology, he always made it a point to talk with people and to be around them in order to fully understand their mentality.

"You could say that Danielou was never a theologian who remained at home with his books. He always gave an intense spiritual direction, spiritual guidance, and he listened to people. He wanted to make it clear that it's important to celebrate baptisms, marriages and other Sacraments.”

During the tribute, the speakers emphasized  the unity between his train of thought and his work as a priest. Since this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council.
