M. Shawn Copeland, PhD, professor of theology at Boston College, will discuss how, in the midst of scandal and schism, Catherine of Siena spoke truth to power. Through formidable critique, gentle urging and bold action, she sought peace among warring Italian states, called for clerical and ecclesial reform, served the destitute and committed herself to uphold the papacy. In other words, in the thick of unauthenticity, Catherine prayed and witnessed to the need for conversion, for authenticity. Given our present ecclesial and social challenges, Catherine's example is as relevant today as it was more than 600 years ago. Free. 714-9105.
