Căsătoria, sacrament al noii alianțe
Documents of Vatican II as Lumen Gentium, Apostolicam Actuositatem, Sacrosanctum Concilium, and especially Gaudium et Spes highlight the interest that the Church manifests for the Sacrament of Matrimony, in the context of developments and new vision proposed by the present society (divorce, abortion, feminist movements etc.).The contemporary society, following a long and reinforced theological tradition of marriage, is called to implement into the family life of our times, the principles proposed by the gospel in order to live a married life “in Christ”.The biblical vision of the human person, the way the nature and the grace are perceived are points of departure and reference for a complex and objective view on the sacrament of marriage. The nature, the value, the effects and purposes of marriage proposed by the ecclesiastical tradition are fundamental aspects that give consistency to the consent of sacramental marriage.The conjugal morality has its ultimate foundation not in human laws but in the divine laws that man cannot change according to its own interests. The state, as representative and guardian of the community wellbeing, is charged with promoting the values and principles for the good of the family and implicitly of the society itself, whose basic unit is the family. In this regard the Council encourages the closeness between the values of the doctrine and the spirit of today’s society, as well as raising public awareness to doctrinal lasting values of faith. The personalist vision proposed by the council, as well as the vocation to holiness in married life, along with what love and procreation represents in a full and stable community of conjugal life corresponds to the values proposed by the Church as a sacramental reality of marriage, according to Christ’s will for the wellbeing of the person and all mankind.

Conceptul de persoană la Jacques Maritain
The Christian anthropology has at its base the concept of the person. The anthropologic oration of Jacques Maritain is focused on the human person as well, with its own characteristics. Maritain, commentator of Tomas de Aquino, takes from Thomism the general structure of his anthropology. His oration starts from the distinction between „specimen” and „person”, present distinction since first works. For the Maritain anthropology is characteristic that it is a metaphysical base. In this respect, we find in the texts of the French thinker a profound analysis of the ontological structure of a person: subsistence, understood as that, in its specific nature, has its being in and for itself; and personality (in a metaphysical sense, not psychological), seen as a balance between subjectivity and objectivity, between independence and dependence, through which the child is growing up and accepts actively the human condition.

Așteptarea creștină a venirii Fiului Omului (Lc 17,26-30)
The eschatology problem is present everywhere in Saint Luke gospel. But, the tension and the eschatology waiting are in a close relationship with the history.
The fragment from Lc 17,26-30 is included in the same eschatology domain, more precise the theme related to the waiting of Jesus second coming. The comparison with the days of Noah and Lot have an exhortatory function, inviting the people of the Saint Luke community to look at the heavenly realities. The delay of Christ’s second coming does not have to determine a life orientated only to the humanly activities, in this forgetting God. The waiting of Christ’s coming must always be alive, knowing that the Lord may come soon and his coming must find us ready.
