Abstract

We will try to show how Chiavacci's approach offers a useful perspective on sexual moral theology consistent with the current teaching of Pope Francis. We will highlight the convergence with the indications in Amoris Laetitia, to guide future reflections. To refound sexual morality, we will introduce the main ideas of Chiavacci's fundamental moral theology, giving particular attention to the cultural relativism; scientific knowledge; and the notion of the natural moral law. We will put under review some elements of the relationship between sexuality and procreation, highlighting the council synthesis of Gaudium et Spes and its recovery in Humanae Vitae, where the mutual gift becomes central to the theological and anthropological meaning of human sexuality. Nevertheless, we will show how the previous paradigm is not completely overcome and highlight paradoxical situations, which require a more careful listening to the scientific, philosophical and theological acquisitions.
