Pope Benedict XVI's first encyclical topic of Oct. 30 Archbishop Ireland Memorial Lecture
The staff of the Archbishop Ireland Memorial Library invites you to attend the 2006 Archbishop Ireland Memorial Lecture from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30, in 3M Auditorium of Owens Science Hall. An informal reception will follow the lecture.
St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity faculty members Sister Paul Therese Saiko, SSND, Father Christopher Beaudet and Father Andrew Cozzens will give a commentary on the topic "Reflections on Deus Caritas Est (Latin for 'God is Love')."
Deus Caritas Est is the first encyclical written by Pope Benedict XVI. The encyclical reflects on the concepts of eros, logos, and their relationship to the teachings of Jesus. Like the first encyclical of Pope John Paul II, Deus Caritas Est is expected to set the tone for Benedict's pontificate. The full text of the encyclical can be found at the Vatican Web site.
The Archbishop Ireland Memorial Lecture is co-sponsored by the St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity and the Archbishop Ireland Memorial Library. For directions, visit the UST Web site. Parking is available in lots N and M, which are south and west of Owens Science Hall.
