Mission, Globalisation and Theological Education: A North American Perspective

William Burrows

Abstract

This article argues that, in the Catholic perspective, the themes of globalization, mission, and theological education must necessarily intersect in a contemporary approach. By focusing in the laity as the primary subject and agent of the Church's mission, globalisation can be more positively appreciated. Church leaders must serve the laity by providing laity with an appropriate theological-spiritual formation that embraces a mystical-aesthetic view of the Christian project.
