LeBlond Lecture Jan. 13
Thursday, December 24, 2009
ST. FRANCIS DE SALES DEANERY — The Athenaeum Lecture series continues Wednesday, Jan. 13, with Benedictine Father Guy Mansini, who will deliver the LeBlond Lecture “In persona Christi and the Legacy of the Second Vatican Council.”
Father Mansini is associate professor of systematic theology at Saint Meinrad School of Theology in Indiana and full-time pastor of St. Isidore Church in Bristow, Ind., and Holy Cross Church in St. Croix, Ind. He is a monk of St. Meinrad Archabbey and received his doctorate in theology from the Gregorian University in 1984. His books include Promising and the Good (2005) and The Word Has Dwelt Among Us: Explorations in Theology (2008); the latter is a collection of his essays.
Father Mansini’s lecture will recount some of the quite extraordinary and mostly unknown history of the composition of Lumen Gentium 21 and Presbyterorum ordinis 2 and the consequence of these texts for priestly identity.
The lecture will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Bartlett Pastoral Center on the Athenaeum campus. It is free and open to the public.
