Freedom and forgiveness in the ethical thought of Father Albert Chapelle

Liberté et pardon dans la réflexion éthique du père Albert Chapelle

NRT 140/4 (2018) p. 590-605
For its divine ontological foundation and its role in the unfolding of freedom, the symbolisation of forgiveness studied by Albert Chapelle shows itself capable of determining the obligatory constitutive element of freedom and of the moral life. By forgiveness, faulty freedom re-acquires (after the acceptance of contingent fallibility), the grace of hoping again and of reaching the contemplation of Love. Spiritual freedom is that freedom which, while being no longer a prisoner of self, is capable of relationship and the gift of self.
Keywords : Symbolisation of forgiveness | Freedom | Prodigal son | Albert Chapelle s.j. (1929-2003)
