In his 2016 World Day of Peace message, Pope Francis indicates that indifference to the needs of others, the closing of our eyes to what is happening around us, or our avoidance of others’ problems, is nothing new. But today, such indifference is no longer simply a personal matter; we have produced ‘a globalization of indifference’.
We overcome this indifference by building a culture in which we make “compassion, love, mercy and solidarity a true way of life.” Pope Francis challenges the human community to open our hearts and minds to the concerns of the most vulnerable persons and of our common home, the earth.
In the 2016-2017 lectures, our speakers invite us to think critically about what mercy and solidarity mean in our families, in our global political relationships, in our local neighbourhoods, and in our relationships with Indigenous peoples and the earth. They will consider the challenges of covering religion in the media, and the role of Christian churches in Confederation.
And, in celebration of A Year with The Saint John’s Bible that St. Jerome’s is hosting in 2017, we will hear about the powerful interplay of images and text in the first handwritten and illuminated Bible in more than 500 years.
We look forward to seeing you!
