Featuring Maria Clara Bingemer, Ph.D.
Professor at Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro
"Love of God, Love of Justice: the Cases of Dorothy Day and Simone Weil"
In this year's lecture, Bigemer will highlight the lives and work of two women: Dorothy Day and Simone Weil. Both had in common a loving sensitivity for the poor. Both committed themselves to a lifelong struggle for justice. Both had a deep connection to God and intense mystical experiences. On the 50th anniversary of the Conference of Medellin, it seems timely to reflect on how these two women continue to inspire Latin American Liberation Theology and the intersection of faith, justice, and politics.
Reception immediately following in the Marymount Institute for Faith, Culture, and the Arts, University Hall 3002.
This event is free but space is limited. Please RSVP.
The 2018 Mary Milligan, R.S.H.M. Lecture in Spirituality is part of the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts' 2018-19 Bellarmine Forum, celebrating collaboration and creativity in faith, culture, and the arts. The central theme of this year's forum pays special tribute to the 50-year anniversary of the affiliation between the R.S.H.M./Marymount and Jesuit/Ignatian traditions at LMU, as well as the influence of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange as one of the university's sponsoring religious orders.
