Legatus Summit Seminar: “Light of Faith”
A Guided Discussion of Pope Francis’ First Encyclical
Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes
Lunch: 1:00 – 1:30 p.m.
Seminar: 1:30 – 3:00 p.m.
What is the proper relationship between faith and truth, and faith and love? How is faith connected to the common good? What role does faith play in edifying and shaping family and society?
Such questions, which press upon our daily lives as Christians and weigh heavily on the public-policy issues of our time, lie at the heart of Catholic teaching.
Please join members of the faculty of Thomas Aquinas College for a complementary lunch and seminar about the meaning and implications of The Light of Faith. The lunch and seminar will take place on the from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 6, 2014, at the Legatus Summit in Orlando, Fla.
This seminar is not a lecture; nor is it a discourse among a panel of experts. Everyone in attendance is invited to participate actively in the conversation, working together to distill and analyze the meaning of this important document. Leading the seminar will be the College’s president, Dr. Michael F. McLean, and its vice president, Dr. Paul J. O’Reilly.
Dr. McLean and Dr. O’Reilly have collectively spent more than 50 years leading seminars as members of the Thomas Aquinas College teaching faculty. At the College, all classes are taught via the discussion method. The curriculum consists exclusively of the great books of Western civilization, including various Church documents and encyclicals.
