Vorstellung meines Forschungsprojekts

“Contemporary Indian Moral Challenges to the Essential Properties of Catholic Marriage: Unity and Indissolubility”: India is not just a country, it is a ‘small continent’ with hundreds of languages, traditions, cultures, customs, theologies, philosophies, spiritualities and so on. Indian Catholics face lot of challenges with regard the official Catholic teaching on the doctrine of Unity (contraception) and on the doctrine of Indissolubility (divorce and remarriage). My project is focused on giving a clear picture of all these contemporary moral challenges.

Meine Motivation, ein postgraduales Studium in Deutschland zu absolvieren

I worked as a professor of Moral theology, Dogmatic theology, and Mariology for six years in the Indian Pallottine Theologate Mysore which is affiliated to the German Pallottine Theologate Vallendar. It presently offers only Bachelors in Theology. I came to Germany to do my Doctorate for two reasons: to strengthen the bond between these two theological institutions and to study the possibility of offering Masters and Doctorates in Theology in Indian Pallottine Theologate Mysore affiliated to the German Pallottine Theologate Vallendar.
