R.I.P., Johann Baptist Metz – one of the greatest (Bavarian) theologians. “We must learn to accept ourselves in the painful experiment of living. We must embrace the spiritual adventure of becoming human, moving through the many stages that lie between birth and death.”
He was a fantastic theologian and his work extremely influential in Catholic circles. Many a paper at CBA mentioned him over the years.
May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
