Italian term or phrase:feconda di bene
Can I translate feconda as profound rather than prolific? What does di bene mean in this context? (see below)
Quella dell’Ottocento fu una Chiesa molto feconda di bene. Al di là dei suoi tanti problemi e di certe evidenti incongruenze, manifestò nelle opere la sua radice cristiana più profonda e vera e la sua reale capacità di rispondere alle sfide dei tempi nuovi.
The Church of the 1800's was much more prolific. Notwithstanding the many problems and obvious incongruencies, it manifested in its works a deeper and truer Christian root and its real ability to respond to the challenges of the new times.
