This thesis proposes a comprehensive, relatable, theological heuristic for Christian spirituality grounded in four paradigms of human experiencing: Vulnerability, Responsibility, Commitment and Fulfilment. This framework of spirituality provides a dialogical and theoretical lens through which to come to theological, pedagogical and strategic recommendations around religious education in Australian Catholic schools.
