"La Familia" as "Locus Theologicus" and Religious Education in "Lo Cotidiano" [Daily Life]
Torres, Valerie
Religious Education, v105 n4 p444-461 Jul 2010
Latinas/os are deeply religious, and their way of expressing and experiencing God and life is often different from that of the U.S. dominant culture. With the importance of family, community, and the belief that God is actively present in daily life in a Latino context, this article explores the interplay between "la familia" as "locus theologicus" and Religious Education in "lo cotidiano." It examines family life as portrayed by Hispanic theologians and religious educators. Thick descriptions and portraits of the families, parish religious educators, and faith communities are used to explore how faith is formed and expressed in Hispanic families. (Contains 14 footnotes.)
