Biserica şi provocările secularismului: corpul şi etica lui
Body and ethics stands at the intersection of moral theology, anthropology, sociology and even culture in the broad sense of the term. In this article, Professor Violeta Barbu presents an anthropological perspective, the issue of body and of ethics, which has undergone many changes over the past five decades. Starting from the presentation of the Christian vision of the body during history, from St. Paul’s anthropology to the theology of the body of John Paul II, is now revealed the rift between body and soul that evolved to highlight the growing body in society and acquiring an overly important role. One common fronts of the Christian worldview and post-modern, but also a bone of contention, is the importance of body health and off-line medical and ethical
biology. However, two problems are analyzed morally and socially, euthanasia(mercy killing) and abortion. In conclusion, Prof. Violeta Barbu includes all processes related to the ethical vision issues associated body and the phenomenon of secularization, a phenomenon increasingly entering in our country.

Evanghelizarea şi postmodernitatea
From the beginning, Christianity has interacted with cultural elements that have ensured a greater ease in preaching and spreading the Gospel. Christianity entered a world where religion was part of the culture. Taking the starting points the cultural elements, Mons. Roland Minnerath wants to capture those key points that can be used in contemporary evangelization. First, there are highlighted the Christian elements that contributed to the formation of Western culture. Next, we analyze trends and principles which have replaced Christian culture with a secular culture, a phenomenon that led to the need for a new evangelization. In the last part, are brought to light deficiencies in the post-modern culture, among which the lack of future prospects and human helplessness in the face of death problem.

Biserica şi secularizarea: curtea păgânilor
In this article, the author examines the relationship between secularization and the Church in terms of „the court of the Gentiles” which is inserted in the report delicately between Church and secularization. Liberal democracies, different religions were equated time, that is why the public should take from them a position of indifference and neutrality, this is true for universal religions, which were required to be limited to long private sector. Such democracies have abandoned the Hegelian scheme in which religion is incorporated and abstracted in the evolution of society and true within the state; in Europe, in addition, they are removed the American scheme, in which religion is a foundation independent of the company, remaining separate politics. For all that, a significant change is unfolded in secular thinking of the environments.

Mons. Marcelo Sorondo (Vatican, Italia)
Secularizarea provocată de ştiinţă
In this article, the author examines the biblical verse „Veritas vos liberavit” – “The truth will set you free” and the pastoral challenges and strategies in the secularization of the Church. The reference point in this study is the relationship between faith and reason, the ratio between them, being two forms of evangelization: from faith to reason, and from reason to faith. Based on this report, the author talks about the conflict between the objective and philosophical reflection in the human practice. In first place, Msgr. M. Sorondo analyzed the neurological sciences and self-interpretation, then talks about conflict in the brain, the mind, the soul and being, and finally to refer the issue of evolution and creation for human beings as a third place of conflict. In the treatment of the subject, the author makes use of both the Bible and the Magisterium of the Church, but also from different philosophers in different periods of history.
