VATICAN CITY, OCT 6, 2004 (VIS) - Members of the International Theological Commission are holding their annual plenary session October 4-8 in the Vatican under the presidency of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger. Fr. Luis Landaria, S.J., the new secretary general, is leading the work sessions.

  According to a communique made public today, participants are preparing the program and work procedures for the next five years. In addition, they continue to reflect on the theme - which they began to consider at the end of the previous five-year  term - of the fate of children who die without receiving the sacrament of baptism in the context of the universal salvation plan of God, the uniqueness of the mediation of Christ and the sacramental character of the Church in terms of salvation."

  "Another topic chosen for study is the natural moral law. In light of the Holy Father's teaching in the encyclicals 'Veritatis Splendor' and 'Fides et Ratio,' participants will promote a reflection that will contribute to a constructive renewal of doctrine on natural moral law."
