Graduate Student Mass at 5:30 in Corr
Lecture by Dr. Eric Saak – Feb. 20, 2014 at 4:30 in Bartley 1011.
“Augustine’s Church—Past and Present” What is the Church? What is Augustine’s response? His answer can be found in The City of God and in what he wrote against the Donatists – an answer largely forgotten or even dismissed today. His view is tied to issues that may seem unpalatable (predestination and sin) and controversial (creation). But to listen to his apparent pessimism will lead to an understanding of the present-day relevance of his understanding of Church.
Dr. Robert Wicks, Psychologist and Spiritual Writer, speaking on “Riding The Dragon” Strengthening Your Inner Life in Challenging Times; 7PM St. Thomas of Villanova Church.
