Balthasar and de Lubac the Greatest Theologians and Humanists of their Age, Beside Ratzinger


Of his first encounter with Hans Urs von Balthasar Joseph Ratzinger says,

Henri de Lubac
"Never again have I found anyone with such a comprehensive theological and humanistic education as Bathasar and de Lubac, and I cannot even begin to say how much I owe to my encounter with them [with whom he would found Communio as a counter-weight to, the out of control, Concilium]."

"Rahner, on the other hand, for the most part allowed himself to be 'sworn in' according to the progressive slogans, and allowed himself as well to be pushed into adventuresome political positions difficult to reconcile with his own transcendental philosophy." Milestones, 143

Three different Jesuits!
Hard to find a picture of Rahner with the roman collar!
Balthasar (1988) and de Lubac (1983) would be named cardinals.
It would be very interesting to know which journal most stimulated (and stimulates) the thought of our Jesuit Pontiff. The good or the bad Jesuits! Communio or Concilium?

Good priests/theologians are the ones who are loyal to the Magisterium, bad priests/theologians are those who are not, regardless of ecclesial rank, religious order, etc.
