This quarter’s lecture series will explore the role of faith within the practice of Ignatian leadership, engaging the foundational witness of Jesus, the leadership of Pope Francis, and the catalyzing examples of women and men with Ignatian vocations. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Nostra Aetate, we will also highlight the import and impact of interreligious dialogue and encounter in transforming and healing our world.
From the moment Pope Francis appeared on the balcony of St. Peter's after his election, he caught the attention of the world and soon became acknowledged as one of the great leaders of our times. However, unlike his immediate predecessors he rarely speaks about Vatican II. Why? How, if at all, do his sometimes dramatic gestures relate to the council?
In our current issue of the explore Journal, we continue the series of dialogue hosted through the 2014-2015 Bannan Institute engaging the question, What Good is God?
