I. Introduction On the one hand, Pope John Paul II's 1993 moral encyclical Veritatis Splendor (VS) has a broad scope, which includes the reaffirmation of relatively undisputed--but perhaps neglected--matters from the moral tradition. For example, the first chapter is primarily an exposition of the central New Testament teachings about the Christian life, including its beginnings in "the encounter with Christ," the call to discipleship, and the responses of conversion, apostolic mission, and the pursuit of holiness. As the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council rightly recognized, presentations of Catholic moral theology must be deeply rooted in these biblical sources and illumine the lofty vocation of the faithful in union with Christ. (1) In full agreement, John Paul reminds us in VS that it is Christ who opens the book of the Scriptures for us, to teach us the truth about moral action. (2)
