ressourcement


French word meaning "returning to the sources"; the word was used, along with the Italian aggiornamento ("bringing up to date") to describe the work of the Second Vatican Council: an updating that would be based on a thorough study of the unchanging truths of the faith as contained in Scripture and the teachings of the early Fathers of the Church.
