dc.description.abstractThe context of rapid secularization provides a particular challenge for contemporary Catholic mission in and to Western cultures. This article considers how wise discernment and compassion toward persons living in a secular age may provide a starting point for Catholic mission today. It also explores how the Church might renew its own self-understanding in a way that allows it to reveal the beauty of Christ to the world. Looking to the work of Catholic philosophers and theologians such as Charles Taylor and Hans Urs von Balthasar, the author proposes some ways in which the Church’s conceptions of church and world might be refigured for fruitful mission to Western cultures in the 21st century.|Keywords: Catholic Church, mission, secularization, Charles Taylor, Hans Urs von Balthasaren_US
