This presentation will be a fascinating consideration of the Church’s actual teaching on the origins of our species. It will be of particular interest to anyone who is interested in science or works in a scientific related field.
We continue our survey of key papal teachings in the modern era with the monumental work by St. John Paul II, “The Splendor of Truth” (Veritatis Splendor). One of the most comprehensive treatments of moral theology ever composed, the document discusses man’s ability to discern good from evil, the nature of evil, the role of human freedom and conscience, and the authority of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.
In this session, we consider the extraordinary role that the Christian family plays in the sanctification of the world. Pope St. John Paul II notes that, “The future of humanity passes by the way of the family.” Written in 1981, The Role of the Christian Family in the Modern World was the second Apostolic Exhortation written by this great pope.
