Catherine Alexander speaks with Father Abbot Nicholas of Holy Resurrection Romanian Catholic Monastery in Newberry Springs, CA about Eastern Catholic theology.
Questions Asked: 1. The Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches say in Canon 28 that "a rite encompasses the liturgical, theological, spiritual, and disciplinary patrimony, culture, and circumstances of history of a distinct people by which its own manner of living the faith is manifested in each Church sui iuris." What does each rite having a different theological patrimony mean in this context?
2. Is there a multiplicity of theologies then accepted among the different Catholic Churches?
3. How can two churches in communion with each other have different theologies?
4. Do Eastern and Oriental Catholics have to affirm dogmas proclaimed by Rome?
5. Do Eastern and Oriental Catholics have to accept all Roman Catholic teachings and theology?
6. May Eastern and Oriental Catholics reject dogmas proclaimed by Rome as being outside their theological patrimony?
