Prostitution and Pedophilia as Challenges to Theological Thought and Ecclesial Action

Description

Prostitution is a very ancient practice; pedophilia is a practice that only recently has come in the limelight. Reactions to these social and ecclesial phenomenon range from open condemnation to hypocritical denial or blindness. Beyond condemnations in the name of human dignity, beyond trials, laws, politics, support groups, what does the Church have to say and do about it? What contributions can the Gospel, the catholic theological and pastoral traditions offer to current discussions and actions? What do these experiences say about human beings, about God, about the Church? Which pastoral approaches are appropriate, opportune, necessary, just and good?
