Alec Kraft Francis of Assisi Dr. Downey Ch. 14 Metz starts off his chapter by addressing pluralism where he says “Pluralism is not simply the answer, but first of all the question and the problem. To solve this problem doesn’t mean to dissolve pluralism. The point is to develop a way of dealing with it that is open and reasonable to all, avoiding cultural relativism without simply relativizing and trivializing the cultures themselves.” (pg 168) Metz is talking about how pluralism is not the end but actually it is the contrary. Instead of concluding a discussion pluralism actually opens more doors and bring about many more questions. Pluralism is necessary according to Metz and dissolving of pluralism is not an option. Metz addresses the idea regarding the association of suffering and sin. Metz says “Jesus didn’t look first to the sin of others but to the suffering of others. To him sin was above all, a refusal to participate in the suffering of others, a refusal to see beyond one’s own history of suffering.” (pg 169)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
