Writer's Wednesday - Henri de Lubac

The development of dogma is an objective phenomenon which has unfolded down through the centuries. But it really does not lead us any farther than the Creed itself.  All it ever does is to clarify it. Contrary to what the expression might suggest, it does not involve either any true growth or continued progress. It is much less a linear unfolding than a perpetual reaction to surrounding circumstances, as history endlessly changes them, in view of maintaining, protecting and making the faith relevant.

----Henri De Lubac, The Christian Faith.
