Details: Join us for a reception in celebration of the newly released book A Godly Humanism: Clarifying the Hope that Lies Within (CUA Press, 2015) by the late Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I. This occasion will include a reception and remarks by His Eminence, Timothy Cardinal Dolan (Archbishop of New York) and Robert Louis Wilken (Professor Emeritus at the University of Virginia). Finished by Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I. nine days before his death, A Godly Humanism offers an account of the Catholic intellectual life by one of the most gifted thinkers to serve as bishop in the American Church. It draws on figures such as St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. John Paul II, and Pope Benedict XVI to express a vision of the Church as a communion built around the relationship of God to human beings and of human beings to one another. The book provides a starting point for the interpretation of “Pope Francis’s Magesterium [as] evidence of another horizon having been opened more clearly for believers.” Presented by the Lumen Christi Institute, First Things, and America Magazine. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
