Monday, April 8, 2019 – When Peter and Paul Disagree: Living in Faithfulness and Charity, 7:00 p.m., Vianney Hall Auditorium
Speaker: Rev. Msgr. Michael Magee, Chair, The past few years have witnessed public controversies waged at a very high level regarding to Church’s doctrine and discipline, with Bishops, scholars and others criticizing one another and calling one another to accountability, while the Successor of Peter himself has been the object of criticism for his magisterial pronouncements and pastoral administration, even from Catholics generally noted for long-standing fidelity to the Magisterium. While surveying the present situation this lecture will seek to identify the guideposts and caveats for understanding and responding to these challenges that may be found to emerge from Sacred Scripture, Tradition, and ecclesial experience. What principles should guide such public dispute? What are the parameters for criticism without rupture of communion, failure of charity or collapse of civil discourse?
