  • 7:15 p.m. Listening to Other Voices

    February 21, 2019  7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Morcone Center, 20 Hull Street, Hingham, MA

    Lecture starts at 7:15 p.m.
    Oscar Romero (1917-1980)
    Archbishop Oscar Romero was considered conservative when appointed in San Salvador in 1977, but the murder of close friend and activist priest, Rutilio Grande, drove him to demand justice for that killing and for the country’s impoverished people. Oscar Romero’s passionate homilies and radio broadcasts resulted in a sniper’s bullet to the heart as he was offering Mass. His canonization, blocked by prelates believing he was killed for his politics not his faith, was pushed forward by Pope Francis in 2018.

    Presenter: Michael Lee is the Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at Fordham University. His latest book, Revolutionary Saint: The Theological Legacy of Oscar Romero, was published in 2018. Born in Miami to Puerto Rican parents, Professor Lee is fluent in Spanish and teaches courses in liberation theology as well as Latin American studies.

    February 26, 2019  7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
    Morcone Center, 20 Hull St, Hingham, MA 02043

    FAITH SEEKING UNDERSTANDING - THEOLOGY FOR EVERYONE A weekly series of videos of Boston College Theology teachers with discussion moderated by Father Timothy.
    Every Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm in lower classroom of Morcone Center.

    Program Schedule:

    Jan. 22: M. Shawn Copeland: “The Fierce Urgency of Now.” This address explores MLK's exercise of the prophetic and those problems from the vantage of political theology.

    Jan. 29: Daniel J. Harrington, SJ: “Encountering Jesus in the Scriptures.” What does current New Testament research have to say to people today? Harrington discusses contemporary scholarship on Jesus as we know him through the Scriptures. (Father Albrecht, a former student of Harrington, will facilitate this session)

    Feb. 5: John Baldovin, SJ: “The Eucharist: Medicine of Immortality.” This presentation will explore the Eurcharist as the source and energy of our true life in Christ; a medicine for the “field hospital” which is the Church (Pope Francis).

    Feb. 12: Francine Cardman: “Images of the Magdalen – A Natural History.” This lecture explores key images of Mary Magdalene over the centuries, the contexts in which they appear and the cultural currents to which they respond.

    Feb. 19: Natana J. Delong-Bas: “Islam 101.” This presentation covers major themes in Islam, including the role of the Qur’an and the Prophet Muhammad, the 5 Pillars and common beliefs and scriptural ties between Islam and Christianity.

    Feb. 26: Andrew R. Davis: “The Psalms: Jewish-Catholic Dialogue Through Shared Praise.” This lecture explores the Psalter as a valuable resource for Jewish-Christian dialogue.

    Mar. 5: Luke Timothy Johnson: “Scripture in the Life of the Church.” The Bible only becomes Scripture within the life of the church. The real question is how Scripture might become a meaningful, indeed powerful, element in the faith of Christians. This presentation considers what practices can form a scriptural imagination among believers.

    No previous registration needed. It is suggested you bring pen and
    paper to take notes. Donations gratefully accepted.
