Join us for our first St. Albert the Great Lecture on Friday, September 25th at 7pm in the ATH Chapel. Astronomy Professor Jonathan Lunine will give the following talk:
"The promulgation of the Encyclical "Laudato Si' was a pivotal moment for the Church and for the environmental movement: Pope Francis' brilliant synthesis of the science behind global warming and its socioeconomic effects with Christian teachings on the poor represent a uniquely powerful call for action. But is this a new direction for the Church in terms of its teachings on the environment? I will show that the Encyclical has deep roots in Catholic teaching as well as in the ideas of Teilhard de Chardin, who for a long time sat on the fringes of the Church. Most importantly, the power of the Encyclical's words must be translated into the power of action...we will have a group discussion on how to make that happen."
