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.
In this presentation, we consider one of the two dogmatic documents issued by Vatican II. A statement of profound mercy, Lumen Gentium (“The Light to the Nations”) considers the question of universal holiness and salvation.
On June 5th, we begin our fourth series in the Mystagogy program with ten weeks dedicated to “The Riches of Magisterial Teaching.” We are blessed to have an amazing guest presenter to kick-off our summer series. Sr. Helena Raphael Burns, fsp, to discuss Humanae Vitae and the Theology of the Body.
