Yves de Montcheuil and the YCW

A nice article here by David Grumett on the theology of Yves de Montcheuil, the French Jesuit theologian who was a friend of Henri de Lubac, another Jesuit who would play a significant role at Vatican II.

Unfortunately, Grumett does not mention the fact that de Montcheuil was also a YCW chaplain, which is also highly relevant to the fact that the latter’s work is a theology of action.

It also turns out that de Montcheuil was the spiritual adviser, perhaps spiritual father even, of Pierre Haubtmann, the French priest who would later take on the role of chief editor and compiler of the famous Vatican II document, Gaudium et Spes.
