On the occasion of the parochial feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help at Holy Ghost Church, Bangalore, during the solemn feast mass at 9.30 AM on 27th January, 2019, the Provincial of the Province of Bangalore Rev. Fr. Edward J. Raju, C.Ss.R released the much awaited book of our revered Moral Theologian of India, Late Rev. Dr. Clement Campos, C.Ss.R., titled “Combining Moral Truth with Pastoral Compassion”– edited by Rev. Dr. Assisi Saldanha, C.Ss.R.  The copies of the book were received by Ms. Bernadette Campos, sister of Fr. Clement Campos and by the Provincial Fr. Edward J. Raju.

About the book

“Combining Moral Truths with Pastoral Compassion” is a compilation of pastoral reflections and articles of Rev. Dr. Clement Campos, C.Ss.R., published in leading theological journals of Moral Theology.  The book reflects contemporary trends in Catholic Moral Theology and is the fruit of deep and profound faith in Christ the Redeemer, his years of teaching in different theological institutions in India and abroad and most importantly reflections born from his pastoral care to the most abandoned and poor in India.  The contents herein indicate only a glimmer of his rich comprehensive knowledge of scripture and Moral theology, contextualized and integrated in his years of pastoral care helping many to make choices based on moral truths.  Being faithful to the Church’s moral wisdom the book offers the Church’s position on the many moral issues concerning our daily life in the light of the pastoral compassion emphasized by our founder St. Alphonsus Liguori (patron of Catholic Moralists).  Written in clear, accessible and lay-friendly language, I highly recommend this book to all those seeking Moral truth with pastoral compassion.
