DETERMINING AND INCREASING THE COMBAT CAPACITY BY ENGAGING THE MILITARY CLERGY IN DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS

Traian CHIRCU

Abstract


By reintroducing religious assistance into the structures of defense, public order and justice, the military priest is assimilated as a catalyst among these institutions. The Church has entrusted it with a very special mission, which otherwise draws pastoral strategies towards the parish environment, the military priest being called upon to rediscover the "link between freedom and holiness" in its area of missionary competences, in the spirit of the fundamental law on freedom of conscience, religious expression and according to the statutory canonical norms in force, specific to the cult they represent.
The involvement of military priests in domestic and international missions is considered to be more than useful, by the nature of their training and specialization being leaders for the achievement of unity of combatants, as well as well-known confessional conflicts, in which religious law applies to legitimate war.
