Credit Units 3 Unit/s
Prerequisite
Course Description The course is the last in the series of the “Faith Journey towards Social Transformation”. “Transforming the World with Vincent de Paul” is designed within the context whereby people face new challenges brought about by scientific and technological advancements, along with the issues and problems that these bring to persons, families, communities and societies. As we cannot put new wine into old wineskins, we need new perspectives and approaches to new challenges. These new ways of understanding and new solutions must still be grounded in the values of the Reign of God that Jesus Christ proclaimed, guided by the social tradition of the Catholic Church, and most especially in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul who promoted what we may call today “systemic change”. Social concerns include globalization and cultures, migration or contemporary human mobility, computer-mediated communications, governance, health and wellness, and the ecological system. Distinct from other courses in the university that teach philosophy-based ethics, this course offers the theological ethical social foundations and principles, particularly the option for the poor and the margins, towards a networked world embraced with charity and justice. (Prerequisites: TH111C “Searching for God”, TH121C “Responding to God’s Call”, and TH211C “Celebrating God’s Presence”; course equivalent in the 2008 curriculum – “Vincentian Studies”)
